We are deeply saddened by the news that four colleagues of SOS Children's Villages Brazil were lost in a plane crash in São Paolo, Brazil, on Tuesday evening local time. The tragedy concerns an SOS mother and three educational co-workers of the SOS Children's Villages Santa Maria and Porto Alegre. They were travelling to the annual SOS Children's Village national convention, taking place in São Paolo.
It is with deep sadness that we commemorate our colleagues, Rosangela, Carmen Luisa, Inês Maria and Leila Maria. Our thoughts and hearts go out to their relatives and to the children of the deceased SOS mother, as well as to the SOS Children's Villages family in Brazil.
