Did you know? (13)

Did you know…in Brazil’s favelas, there is one goal: to find a safe place to call home? Actress and CAFOD supporter Jo Joyner travelled to Sao Paulo with CAFOD and said, “Millions were being spent on a football stadium, whilst the poorest communities were told there was no money for essential services. The contrast between rich and poor was shocking. We visited occupations – buildings taken over as housing by communities forced out of favelas – to meet people who face the daily threat of eviction”. Stand by Brazil during this World Cup, and support the battle for rights, for a place to call home. Visit www.cafod.org.uk/standbyBrazil


 We provide a weekly ‘CAFOD fact’ as a short ‘Did You Know?’ to parishes across the Lancaster Diocese, which they print in their parish newsletters. If you would be interested in receiving this weekly email, let us know at CAFOD Lancaster and we’ll send it directly to you too – email: lancaster@cafod.org.uk
