Currently, the VOU has 26 volunteers who carry out a bimonthly schedule of actions. In its first year of operation, in 2021, the VOU dedicated 141 hours of volunteer work. It is worth remembering that, for much of 2021, isolation due to the pandemic was necessary. In 2022, there are already 403 hours of services provided to the community.

Leader of the group, employee Osmar Ferreira says that the actions started spontaneously in 2020, during the floods in the municipality of Iconha. Unimed Sul Capixaba collected supplies and provided transportation and food support for 10 employees to go to the city to help residents affected by heavy rains.

“After that, we started to carry out other actions with the support of the cooperative and we structured ourselves better. The pandemic interrupted work for a period, but this year, we are back with our schedule and we have already carried out several campaigns, such as the donation of coats and free health care”, he says.

For Osmar, volunteering means commitment and donation. “Volunteers often give up their rest or time with their family to help other people. The fact that we work in a cooperative that already brings the essence of solidarity makes our work easier, as we have the necessary support from the managers to give sustainability to the actions”, he concludes.
