Bom dia a todos! Fiz o teste da Covid-19 e deu positivo. I am here, I am complying with my regulation at home, and I have the greatest concern at this time and we will continue our campaign of arrecadação, because the most underprivileged could not be satiated by a MOMENTÂNEA medical band, but it is not a war that we are dealing with, to feed the least favored. Regardless of us being unable to go to the country, our army of ATHLETES AND COLLABORATORS will continue to distribute basic baskets to us with marked hours – and assuming that they are freed, I will be back in front of you, buying and distributing food FOR TOGETHER WE HAVE COME TOGETHER THAT WAR. Every week I have gone to the bank to pull or extract to loan accounts from campanha. Unfortunately, that week I would have to post or extract from my cell phone (or that I do not like to do because I do not show or do not value the André Pederneiras Institute together), but also that I was freed to leave, I will go back to post or I extract as a fazendo . O motto da minha vida semper foi LUTANDO PARA VENCER, e não will be different now! I am very obliged to everyone who is donating and helping those people who are in need of some form.

I decided to do the tests, I am with the virus, but I do not have immunity now. The same day, I quarantined my room, “ Dede He stated that the institute continues to work, even without him, which is in quarantine.
