Dams, Reparation

Vale, today, started the registration process for donations for victims in the Self-Rescue Zone

Values will be donated to residents, farmers and traders

The registration process regarding the donation, for humanitarian purposes, for those affected by the breach of Dam I, in Brumadinho (MG) began on Monday (11/2), at 9 am. Residents of the Self-Rescue Zone (ZAS) of the Emergency Plan for Dams and Mining (PAEBM) are entitled to an amount of R$ 50,000.

Those who produced or had commercial activities in the area will receive R$ 15,000. In an agreement signed this morning with the Public Defender of the State of Minas Gerais, the donations of R$ 15,000 are temporarily suspended until the company and the competent public bodies review the necessary documentation of this specific process, a matter to be dealt with in a scheduled audience this Thursday (14/2).

Registration will be held at the Knowledge Center, from Monday to Friday, from 9am to 6pm. To aid access, mini-vans will be available to take applicants to the venue.
