Lorrayne has lost her brother, her dreams and her hope and needs to believe again that there is life and a future

by Laurence Brown in Redditch, England, United Kingdom

I have never used crowd funding before as I have never found anything deserving that I would fund myself but this is so sad and deserving.

Lorrayne (on the right in the pic. In happier times with her Mother) lives in Goiania, a city in the middle of Brazil. Not starting with a lot, she is and has always been someone who gives not asking for anything back. She helps her friends and family, people she hardly knows often to her own detriment.

She has tried to do the best for herself, even moving to different cities in Brazil to provide for her and her family, it has just never worked and she has ended up back where she started, often with less than before, no home of her own, living from day to day trying to simply survive.

Until re ently she was helping her father in his shop, not earning enough to live on, more to support him, again selfless.

Then last month her brother was gunned down in front of his girlfriend and baby and this has sent her spiraling down in unimaginable sadness.

As her dream has always been to visit her Aunty, here in England this is what I want to fund.

Nothing can be done to replace her Brother, or even change her situation, what I am looking to achieve by getting the funds for this is physically, emotionally and mentally give her time away from all the sadness.

This may not change her life but I am hoping it will bring some light back into it - I need your help to make this happen. 

Obviously I don't know if you feel this is worthy, I can only hope so.  Should you not be in a position to help, but know someone who can please share this forward.

Thank you
