Vale set up the Brumadinho Knowledge Center, a help center for the families of those affected by the accident at the Córrego do Feijão mine. The center, which runs 24 hours a day with about 80 professionals, is fully prepared to attend to the needs of the community.

At present, the main areas of activity in the area are to host families, registration, sorting and referral of homeless to hotels, registration of relatives eligible to receive the R$100 thousand donation offered by Vale, the delivery of sim cards/cell phone chips by the Civil Defense to families, and psychological assistance, as well as a cafeteria with free food for families. A team of doctors, social workers and psychologists are working to welcome, listen and comfort people who are waiting for news from relatives.
