The sheer volumes of water resulting from a cloudburst in the mountain region of Rio de Janeiro has taken hundreds of lives, among them the mother of our GMA Pablo Popovitch, Soraya. Pablo’s plight is representative of thousands suffering from the catastrophe in the state of Rio de Janeiro. The family home was completely destroyed, as can be seen in the video below sent in by the fighter, and his father’s life is currently at risk.
Popovitch launched a website to collect donations to help treat his father. Furthermore, a number of black belts in the American state of Florida are holding a benefit seminar at American Top Team headquarters on January 30.
