A survey conducted by Datapedia.info, conducted by the Maria Cecilia Souto Vidigal Foundation, shows that in 2019, the Blue Care Day Care Needs Index (INC) was 50.9% among children aged 0 to 3 years living in urban areas. To address this fact, the municipality’s seven Social Assistance Reference Centers (CRAS) provide a network to protect these minors and prevent social risks. This was shown on NDTV in the series “Mouse Q Vantagens” produced by the Balanko Geral program. Record TV.

Luselma Damasio Baldy, manager of CRAS 1 (Velha), explained that with the resumption of face-to-face activities in schools during the Covid-19 epidemic, CRAS has received requests for assistance regarding children, such as neglect, violence and other vulnerabilities. “Therefore, working with families to strengthen bonds promotes and accesses the importance, rights and public policy of the team in social support”, the expert argues.

The study shows that INC consists of three indicators. One of them is the proportion of urban children in poor families (5.8% of total). The other refers to non-poor urban children in single parent households (3.3%), and the latter refers to the share of non-poor urban children in non-single parent families whose mothers are economically active or have a vacancy in day care (45.1%). ).

Despite the data showing a worrying reality, Lucelma says the demand for vulnerable families has increased in Blumenau. “The demand for protection and promotion of individuals in the family also increases due to various factors ranging from increased socio-economic vulnerability”, the manager analyzes.

According to the survey, the percentage of underweight or underweight children aged 0 to 5 years was 3.2%, one percentage point higher than the state, which was 2.8%. Nationally, the figure is 4.1%. The data is linked to the Ministry of Health’s DataSUS system.

One way to soften these numbers is from February 5, 2021, when the Municipal Department of Social Development (SEMUDS) reported that, with the return of face-to-face classes at municipal schools and day care centers, school food kits were to be distributed in educational places. Is not.

Families benefiting from the food aid program, formerly known as Balsa Familia, had to start serving through a technical assessment in a CRAS unit. “The services provided are ready to meet the needs of our community,” Lucelma Damasio Baldi highlights.
