The rescue plan was the joint effort of seven embassies and one consulate-general and coordinated by the Embassy of Brazil in Ghana.

On July 21, Brazilian nationals in Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Nigeria, and Senegal traveled by land and air to Accra. Many of the evacuees flew on Africa World Airlines ERJ145s to Accra where they connected to a special Azul Airlines charter flight to Campinas.
