Help Paratlete Leonia to participate in Dubai World Championship

Campaign to financially help Leonia to go to the Parajiu Jitsu World Championship in Dubai.

Campaign to financially help Leonia to go to the Parajiu Jitsu World Championship in Dubai.

For those who do not know, Leónia Braga is amputated of half leg and is an athlete of ParaJiu Jitsu in SampaioBjj_fcs.
It aims to participate in the largest number of Parajiu Jitsu competitions, to give their best as a paratlete in order to promote and encourage people with limitations and disabilities.

She is the only amputee athlete in Portugal to participate in competitions and has already won some championships medals, the main objective is to reach Dubai and participate in the World Championship. Unfortunately, this martial art does not receive any support from entities and all expenses are borne by the athletes.

The miles are many and the expenses to go to the other side of the planet are not easy to bear. Therefore, the purpose of this campaign is to make it possible for Leonia to reach Dubai with the help of all those interested in helping and supporting.

Little is done a lot, so a little of each is a big help.
Much or little will be welcome!

Thank you!
