There are many ways to become part of our initiative. We are excited about any message, about any kind of support and, of course, about any donation!
Currently, our nation is suffering from an increasing number of children and adolescents who ever earlier get in touch with drugs, either through a direct participation in drug trafficking or other criminal activities, such as thefts to provide money for purchasing drugs and thus satisfying their own addiction. Unfortunately, this is part of the sad daily reality faced by many Brazilian families.
Dear Iron Man and friends,
Hereby we would like to express you our sincere thanks for your generous donations, which enabled us to carry out an extensive, effective campaign against adolescent drug abuse in the northeastern Brazilian municipalities Tacima and Cacimba de Dentro. In a joint effort we managed to explain harmful and negative consequences of drug consumption to almost 600 children last year (and another 400 last month alone) with first great results.
Saint Nikolaus is known all over world as he brings presents to our children on the evening December 6 – which is his actual saint’s day- he gives sweets, nuts, apples and all sorts of things to children who “have behaved well” during past year.

We are happy to report from various projects sponsored with funds raised through the participation in an Iron Man by Johannes Rabl and his supporters. The projects are dedicated to helping children: food supplementation, and several courses, training programs and campaigns.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

1 June 2012: Anti-Drug event in Solânea - 2,000 attendees 1,830 seedlings distributed
On June 1, our project team participated in a large event that is part of an anti-drug rally. It took place in a movie theater in Solânea and was attended by around 2,000 students. We distributed 1,830 seedlings.
In the presence of 20,000 pilgrims, 1,830 of our seedlings were blessed by Father João Batista da Silva Firmo and Bishop Dom Lucena at a mass on 13 May 2012 at the sanctuary at Pedra da Boca. They were then distributed by a team of our children's group. For a full report with photos, please click here (in Portuguese).
