Alunorte starts on August 1 the second phase of delivery of food cards in the Murucupi river basin, in Barcarena (PA). The documents will be delivered until August 20, door to door, at the addresses previously passed on by the beneficiaries.
In this phase, 11,151 family units will receive the food card, with credit deposited in five installments, starting in August. The number of beneficiaries was defined after a meeting held between the Public Ministry and representatives of Hydro and Alunorte, on July 12th.
The temporary social benefit of the food card is foreseen in the Conduct Adjustment Term (TAC) signed between Hydro, Alunorte, 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 will be carried out by Temple, which worked in the same process during the first phase, when 4,710 family units received the cards after proving to live in communities in the Murucupi River basin, in February 2018.
On July 22, Alunorte held a Social Dialogue with representatives of communities in the Murucupi River basin to guide them on the card delivery process. During the meeting, the telephone was also informed to clarify doubts about this operation. It will be Canal Direct, from Hydro, through the number 0800 721 07 94. The service is open 24 hours, every day.
At the meeting, Hydro's Social Responsibility team explained that up to two delivery attempts will be made. The card may be received by the head of the family unit or by a relative (father, mother, son, wife or spouse), who is of legal age, presents an original document from the cardholder and proves the relationship through documentation.
The Social Dialogue reaffirms Alunorte's commitment to meet with the community whenever there are new notes regarding the TAC process, offering not only the opportunity to inform about the operational part of the card delivery, but also to listen to representatives communities, welcoming their expectations and suggestions for process improvement.
