We’re sure you’ll have seen our countdown over on our Twitter and Facebook accounts urging CAFOD supporters to stand in solidarity with a community in São Paulo who have been facing eviction from their homes.
237 families were faced with the uncertainty of losing their home, but thanks to the support of CAFOD supporters from across the Archdiocese of Liverpool and further afield, we are thrilled to say that there will be no eviction!

Over three and a half thousand people signed the petition from across England and Wales.
More than one hundred supporters from the North West took a photograph of themselves with a #FicaMaua sign and signed the petition in order to spread the word, and it’s only with the ongoing pressure from CAFOD supporters that the eviction has been overturned.

CAFOD Liverpool’s campaigns co-ordinator, Emily McIndoe, said: “We’re so pleased with the result of this campaign. The support from parishioners in the Archdiocese of Liverpool has been astounding. What great news!”
This success truly is testament to the power of campaigning – well done, and thank you for adding your voice to the petition.
