Brazil Foundation has launched Embrace Brazil, an international donation campaign and your unique chance to impact the lives of highly vulnerable children in Porto Alegre.Embrace WimBelemdon
Brazil is going through a profound economic and political crisis. Social projects have been devastated, reducing scope or even closing doors.
WimBelemDon is working at 60% capacity. In the past 3 years, many recurrent philantropists have either reduced or completely stopped donating.
Unless this trend is immediately reverted, WimBelemDon will close its activities after 17 years of continued and successful journey of Social Transformation.
* All the donations through this Campaign are subject to tax incentives for US based donor.

* Text written by Arthur Ashe
We believe that, like any individual sport, especially Tennis, make children discover they can overcome obstacles in their own and succeed in the game. This, with no doubt, helps to develop skills and positive attitudes that enable them, in the future, to participate actively in the brazilian society.
