Updated: Dec 13, 2020

It is with great sadness that today we bid farewell to Mr. Joseph Safra Z"L, a great man and philanthropist, who adopted Brazil as his home more than 50 years ago.

The Board and the StandWithUs Brasil team express their deepest feelings to his wife Vicky, their sons Jacob, Ester, Alberto and David and their grandchildren.

An example to be followed in Brazil and in the world, Joseph and his entire family have always believed in education and peace.

We are grateful for your generosity and for your commitment to these and other causes.
