A Brazilian charity that cares for disabled and abandoned children, most of whom survived abortion attempts, is appealing for help after a devastating flood damaged its primary care home last year.
Antonio Carlos Tavares de Mello (“Tonio”), the founder of the Jesus Menino Community, reported the charity’s headquarters in Petropolis were badly damaged in the February 2022 floods, which caused major landslides, took 231 lives and left $200 million in damage.
“Dear friends, we present through this project our great need,” Tonio wrote in the appeal published on Wednesday. “With the heavy rains that hit Petropolis, our house was badly damaged. A large part of the roof was damaged and the amount of leaking inside the accommodation has increased.”
He said the charity is therefore seeking funds to “repair the roof and the internal and external areas of the headquarters.”
The house provides shelter for 19 of the charity’s 46 children who suffer from neurological diseases and visual and mental disabilities. The building also contains the charity’s chapel, kitchen and laundry room.
