A safe new start after mum's murder
This campaign is to help raise funds for my brother Daniel Viana, and his children Julia, 14 and Yuri, 4 who have suffered the tragic loss of their mum, Fatima Viana.
On the 28th of June 2016, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Daniel's wife (my sister-in-law) Fatima, 45, was brutally raped, disfigured and murdered near her own home in Brasilândia by a neighbour.
Two days later, a judge let the assassin free because the murderer confessed to his crime - and therefore was not seen by this judge as a threat to society.
Fatima was a dedicated mother, wife and community health worker and acted as a counsellor for the youngsters. Our family is absolutely devastated and we are at the start of a long battle to claim justice from the Brazilian authorities.
I have also dedicated myself to setting up a cause ‘Diga NAO as Estupro’ (Say No to Rape), for Fatima de Jesus Viana Rosa and all victims of RAPE around the world whose justice has not yet been served.
Whilst we continue this fight, my family has started moving out from this dangerous neighbourhood - a place now tarnished with bad memories - but need financial support to settle somewhere new.
I would like to ask your help in raising £5,000 so that my brother and his children can make a fresh start in a new and safer area. The funds raised will go directly towards my family's relocation.
Please also consider sharing this page with your family and friends to help spread awareness of this campaign.
Thank you all in advance for your
support in this troubled time – God bless you all!
Esta campanha tem como finalidade ajudar financeiramente meu irmão Daniel Viana e seus filhos Julia (14 anos) e Yuri (4 anos) que estao sofrendo a tragica perda de sua mae Fatima Viana.
No dia 28 de Junho de 2016, na area de Brasilandia, Zona Norte de São Paulo, minha cunhada Fatima Viana (45 anos) foi brutalmente, estuprada, desfigurada e assassinada por um vizinho algumas casas depois da dela.
Dois dias depois, o juiz deixou que o assassino ficasse livre por ter entrado no Forum e confessado seu crime, nao representando assim um risco a sociedade.
Fatima sempre foi uma mae e esposa dedicada, trabalhava como Agente de Saúde do UBS da Vila Penteado (ZN Sao Paulo) e era conselheira de adolescentes. A nossa familia está absolutamente devastada e nós estamos no começo de uma longa batalha em busca de justiça por parte das autoridades Brasileiras.
Eu me dediquei pela causa criando a página ‘Diga NAO ao Estupro’ (Say No to Rape) , em memoria da Fatima Viana e tambem de todas as victimas de ESTUPRO ao redor do mundo que ainda nao obtiveram justiça.
Enquanto continuamos nesta luta, minha familia tem começado a mudança para sair deste bairro perigoso, um lugar agora manchado por más recordaçoes e para tal precisamos de um suporte financeiro para restabelecer em um novo comeco.
Eu gostaria de pedir a ajuda de todos voces pra levantar 5000 Libras para que meu irmão e seus filhos possam comecar uma nova vida numa area mais segura.
Todos os fundos arrecadados servirão unicamente a este proposito e irao diretamente para a minha familia.
Porfavor considere também compartilhar esta página com seus familiares e amigos para ajudar a espalhar a conscientizacao do motivo desta campanha
Muito obrigada antecipadamente pelo seu suporte neste momento tao doloroso - Deus abencoe a todos voces!
Romans 8:28 says " And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose"
Our family truly believes that.. Amen
God bless you all!

D - Babe I want to begin a psychology course, what do you think?
F - Ah how nice!!!
D - Well, you are pregnant and soon the kid will be]born, I know you will need me to be more present. The course is long, 5 years.. 10 semesters hun, it will be challenging. In 5 years many things will happen, maybe because of the course, we will face some financial difficulties.
F - It is long indeed (lol)
D - But I want you to feel free to tell me what you think about it, because I will only do it if you take part and be with me on this project. If you say no, that you need my presence, you don't feel secure enough for that at this very moment, that you need me, somehow more present at this time, I will comprehend it and gladly do as you wish, because I love you and I love to take care of you in everything and in each detail.
That minute a beautiful smile opened on her face, and with a deeply caring eyes and solicitude to serve, she replied:
F - Dan, my dear husband, I know and I feel looked after by you, and I want you to do it, because I know you are thinking forward in our future and that you have already seen something there, I trust the Lord and He will provide for us. Go and study. Today you may not go because our child will be born, tomorrow you may not go because he will need to go to school, then after that you may not go because Julia will have to go to the University, then because Yuri will have to go to the University. Time will pass and we will lose the opportunity that the Lord is giving us. If you have this purpose in your heart it is because the Lord put it, and you will be a more qualified pastor to look after what really matters to HIM, LIVES! I will go with you wherever you go, this was our deal remember? I will go because I trust you and I feel secure with you my man and soon my psychologist!
We then prayed together, we began the course, we completed the course at the beginning of June and we celebrated for one month the conclusion of our project. We had other projects in common, that the contingencies of life did not allow us to complete
Some of them I will carry on by myself, others I will abandon because it doesn't make any sense to pursue them without her and there are some projects I reformulated in order to continue the journey which has been given by HIM, my Christ!
Everyone knows I am kind of reserved and I don't like to expose myself, especially my personal and family life, but I wanted to share this story with you all for the support and affection that each of you have had towards me and my family
Thank you ALL!
PRAISE BE TO THE LORD!!!!!!!
Olá Natalia, até onde nós sabemos para Dolar, Euro e Libra nao existe taxa de conversão, mas nós nao temos informação sobre doaçoes feitas em Reais. Talvez seja cobrada uma pequena taxa de conversão para Libra. Melhor voce checar com seu banco antes de doar, para depois nao ter surpresas desagradaveis. A doação pode ser qualquer valor, qualquer ajuda será aceita com gratidao
Oi Natália porque eu moro no Reino Unido e o site é daqui porém quando alguém doa de qualquer outro país eles convertem pra libra. Então por exemplo se você doa R$ 50,00 apareceria aqui £10 . Meus alunos no Reino Unido tiveram essa iniciativa de fazer esse fundraising pra ajudar minha família. Obrigada Bia
