Fatima Soriano

Ma. Fatima Victa Soriano
, a little angel was born on June 12, 1993, and was named after our Virgin Mary of Fatima. She resides Tabon 3, Kawit, Cavite but now migrated to Union City, USA with her family. She was born blind and was diagnosed with kidney failure, end-stage and used to have dialysis every four hours, five times a day for ten months.

It was on July, 2003 when she called up in a radio program of Fr. Jerry Orbos, SVD, in ZNN Veritas, thereby started touching inspiring lives of people. Since then, the public had known her to be "Fatima, the little angel." Her enriching life was featured in "Maalala Mo Kaya!" Likewise, she appeared in number of television shows and TV Masses.

With God's grace, she has had a successful kidney transplant last February 28, 2004. Fatima, through her words, and now through her songs reminds us to be hopeful and to be joyful inspite of sufferings. She also reminds us to go back to our hearts, to go back to the Lord and to the Blessed Mother and find peace, and become instruments of peace.

Last year, Fatima's family decided to migrate to Union City USA, continuing to share inspirations, telling us that with God nothing is impossible if we only trust Him, and reminding us not to lose hope... as she always says... "Habang may buhay may pag-asa."

At present, her family is back here in the Philippines. Fatima Soriano recorded her latest album and was launched at her concert last October 10, 2009 at Meralco Theater, Pasig City. The concert was entitled, "A New Beginning" Fatima Soriano and The Oasis of Love Praise Ministry with speciali guests Christopher De Leon, Giselle Sanchez, Fr. Jerry Orbos, SVD, Fr. Erick Santos, Bro. Jun "Dr Love" Banaag, OP., Prayboyz and K5, directed by Adrian Panganiban. Her album "Journey to the Heart" is now available in selected record stores nationwide in record selling websites.

Latest reports say Soriano still has to check with her doctors. She said she had received the same offers before but her doctors disapproved the idea based on the past tests done to her.

“Kasi ‘yung problem is ‘yung retina ko and sa past studies, may takot sila na baka ‘pag ginalaw mas lalong lumala 'yung mata ko over all,” Soriano told the Manila Bulletin.
