Now retired from Professional fighting Jean Silva and his wife are serving as missionaries on the Island of São Miguel Portugal. They have been on the Island since the beginning of the year helping deliver ready made food to those in need. With added demands for an increase in food preparation, and an increase of those in need of service, there has become an increased necessity to create an Industrial Kitchen capable of servicing the communities most at need. Every Saturday they are currently offering over 50 meals to the community and are looking to add additional days of service, which the creation of an Industrial kitchen would support. Members on Cyborg Nation who feel this is a charitable cause they would like to support can donate online through the projects Go Fund Me.
In addition to the Go Fund Me, Cyborg will be creating a virtual Run for Change event which will serve as an outreach donation project. Members on Cyborg Nation wanting to participate will have details soon on the 5k event which will include a certificate of completion signed by Cris Cyborg herself!
