feature story Chevron Brasil and Enabled donate to treat children with autism

Nine children and teenagers on the autistic spectrum will receive treatment to improve their quality of life and develop their autonomy in motor, cognitive and social areas. The initiative is part of a donation package worth $5,000 made by Chevron Brasil and the Enabled employee network to União Carioca Autista (UCA), a non-profit institution that aids people with autism.

The amount will help pay for the treatment of these patients for 1 year as well as in works to improve the house where the institution is located, in Rio de Janeiro. “This donation is very important for our service space, which will be able to offer a more suitable environment for the development of our children and teenagers”, emphasizes Renata Dourado, UCA foundress.

In addition to the cash amount, the company donated two laptops, two iPhones and furniture items (chairs, tables, cabinets, and drawers, among others) to the non-profit organization.

“We are very happy to be able to contribute to improving the health and well-being of those really in need”, says Leonardo Knittel, Database and Information Analyst and Enabled Vice-President.
