A Seventh-day Adventist ministry in Brazil distributed toys to more than 150 Syrian refugee children who live in downtown Sao Paulo thanks to the contribution of the largest telecommunications company in Brazil.
The initiative on December 4 was coordinated by Genesis Base Institute, a center of influence run by the Seventh-day Adventist church in the city of Sao Paulo. Genesis Base Institute also offers courses, speech classes and other initiatives for refugees in Sao Paulo.
The toys were donated by “OI”, a national network of internet and television companies. The kids had the opportunity to choose their gifts, which were sponsored by OI employees.
