Action for Brazil’s Children Trust

Despite Brazil being one of the major economies in the world, there are 12 million people living in favelas

 

Most favelas across Brazil lack basic infrastructure, health services, education, sanitation, water supplies and garbage collections. They suffer from mudslides, floods, and disease epidemics. These communities are also centres for violence by gangs, drug traffickers or the police, as well as domestic violence caused by the collapse of the family structure due to drugs, lack of income and sub-human living conditions.

 

Brazil has 15 of the 50 most violent cities in the World. The international drug trade and its passage through Brazil has led to a crack epidemic. Many children on the street are addicted, have dropped out of school and left home. They spend days without sleeping, eating or washing and engage in crime, prostitution and weapon trafficking. Many become victims of violence, HIV, hepatitis, unwanted pregnancy and murder  

 

We work with local communities to help change this
