Meet the Pires family
Celeste and Jorge are the proud parents of two beautiful boys Diego 16 years old and in Grade 11, Antonio 12 years old and in Grade 7. Diego and Antonio are talented water polo players, they both have worked hard to get to the 1st team in their respective age groups. Diego and Antonio are focused on fitness and training constantly to keep in shape and their commitment shows. The boys are skilled water polo players and are both dedicated to their school work as well, both achieving outstanding results and finding a balance to work hard and do the best they can under our current circumstances. The lack of resources and a secure home environment will hold them back to be the best they can be.
Last year we lost our family restaurant business after 12 successful years as a result of becoming ill with severe burnout which led me to developing diabetes and hypertension. After 6 months at home I was able to secure work, which was 5 hours away from the family I was away for 13 weeks. This income allowed me to cover the basics and keep the family sustained but we still did not manage to keep our family home, All prospects of work came to an abrupt end because of Covid-19. We are in desperate need to raise funding to help us keep our boys in school, allow us to secure basic day to day food and a home rental to live in once the lock-down is lifted. Any amount will help and we are grateful for your generosity.
