Victims of floods in RS will have free access to documents, says government

The government of Rio Grande do Sul signed this Monday (10) a cooperation agreement that aims to facilitate access for the population affected by the floods to civil documents.

According to the state government, 40 institutions are part of the project, called Central Citizenship. The first joint operation will be carried out next week, from June 17th to 23rd, between 1pm and 6pm, in the parking lot of the Total shopping mall, in Porto Alegre. Subsequently, the project should expand to serve other cities.

The participating institutions will be gathered in one place to prioritize the homeless population or those in vulnerable situations. All document issuances will be free and carried out through joint efforts.

According to the latest Civil Defense report, the rains in Rio Grande do Sul affected more than 2.3 million people in 478 municipalities. The tragedies left 173 dead, 38 missing and 806 injured.

How will it work

Among the documents that can be renewed are birth and marriage certificates, duplicate identity cards, the Individual Taxpayer Registry (CPF) and the National Driving License (CNH). Medical expertise and legal guidance services will also be provided during opening hours.

On service days, the State Foundation for Metropolitan and Regional Planning (Metroplan) will leave some buses available to provide free transport directly from the capital’s shelters to Shopping Total.

During the signing of the agreement, governor Eduardo Leite (PSDB) explained the importance of these emissions, including for the distribution of aid. “This is a basic element for exercising citizenship, especially at this time. The records, registrations and all the information that the State has are essential for the population to be served.”
