Victory for the Mauá but the struggle goes on
Did you know…237 families in Sao Paolo, Brazil, have won the right to secure permanent housing after the municipal government signed over £3 million to purchase the Mauá building – their home for the last seven years? The Mauá community faced the threat of eviction on the eve of the World Cup, unless the authorities converted the abandoned hotel into social housing. News of the victory was greeted with jubilation. Huge thanks to the thousands of CAFOD supporters in England and Wales who backed their campaign – the international pressure and solidarity worked.
Thank you for your continued support.
