An alternative look at the World Cup

 

England played 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?
