From August 1st to 20th, 10,991 cards were handed out, door to door, to family units that proved their residence in the Murucupi River basin area, in Barcarena / PA. The number corresponds to 98.57% of the total expected in this second phase.
With the second phase completed, Alunorte, starting in September, will provide a fixed service point in Vila dos Cabanos for families that, for some reason, were unable to receive the cards.
In case of doubts, the beneficiary can contact Hydro's Direct Channel, by calling 0800 721 07 94. The service is open 24 hours a day, every day.
Credit will be deposited in five installments
The documents delivered in the second phase ensure credit deposited in five installments, the first already carried out, still in August. The number of beneficiaries in the second phase was defined after a meeting between the Public Ministry and representatives of Hydro and Alunorte, on July 12th.
The food card is a temporary social benefit provided for in the Conduct Adjustment Term (TAC) signed between Hydro, Alunorte, the Government of Pará and the State Public Prosecutor's Office (MPPA) and the Federal Public Prosecutor's Office (MPF), last year.
The delivery to each family unit was made by Temple, which worked on the same process during the first phase at the end of last year, when 4,710 family units received the cards after proving to live in communities in the Murucupi river basin, in February 2018.
