LATAM group and UNHCR begin transporting 200 modular houses to Brazil

LATAM, through its "Solidarity Plane" program, transported the first shipment of 100 out of 200 modular houses donated by the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to support the emergency caused by the floods in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. This initial 16-ton shipment departed from Bogotá and landed in São Paulo to continue its journey by land to the affected area.

The transport of these emergency houses, known as Refugee Housing Units, to Brazil is the result of coordination between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Ports and Airports, and UNHCR, an ally of LATAM's "Solidarity Plane" program since April 2022. These mobile structures are intended for the flood victims in Brazil, becoming temporary emergency housing to provide better shelter and greater privacy for the affected families.

With this initiative, LATAM's Solidarity Plane has transported a total of 142 tons of donations, including basic food baskets, water, disposable diapers, blankets, and other essential items, as well as 102 volunteers, including doctors, nurses, veterinarians, and firefighters, free of charge to southern Brazil since May 4 of this year. These transports have been carried out both on commercial flights to regional airports and on special flights to the Canoas Air Base (RS), with donations coming from countries such as Portugal and the United States.
