An Alternative Look at the World Cup

Despite the Brazilian Government promising that no public money will be used to fund the World Cup, more than 90% of the cost will come from public funding, paid by Brazilian taxpayers. Brazil has around 40 million people living in poverty, and of these 16 million people are living in extreme poverty. Brazil desperately needs thousands of schools, creches, hospitals, public transport, and homes for its people. Will you stand by the people of Brazil? Click here.

An Alternative Look at the World Cup

England was scheduled to play their first match in a new stadium in Manaus in the Amazon region, costing at least £165m. The Amazon region is home to 80% of Brazil’s indigenous population, some of the most vulnerable people in Brazil. Infant mortality among the Yanomami people has doubled in the last 13 years, yet in 2013, 0% of £16.1m Brazilian health budget was spent on basic sanitation to prevent disease in indigenous villages. CAFOD has been working in the Amazon Region area for decades and our partners have been protecting the rights of indigenous people to land and health care. Will you stand by the people of Brazil?
