Maré (Rio de Janeiro)[editar | editar código-fonte]

At the Maré Favela Complex, the community created a campaign to inform the population about the Covid19.  The organizers consider local communication strategies a crucial tool to inform about the risks of the pandemic since not everyone has access to mass media. Besides, the favela has difficulty abiding by the self-isolation rules, a problem that has been addressed by initiatives such as putting on banners, posters in public spaces, renting sound equipped cars to go around the favelas giving instructions and radio programs.

Support to the Santa Marta families[editar | editar código-fonte]

Santa Marta - grupo eco.jpg

The Covid19 has spread drastically in Rio de Janeiro as an unprecedented tragedy. It threatens the lives of 2 million residents of the favelas, who are even more vulnerable given their difficulty to follow the standard procedures of self-isolation and sanitization. This project has been created by volunteer teachers and self employed professionals to help 50 families from Santa Marta, for three months, with a focus on elderly people, mother-only families and children.

The community leader and president of the Association School Without Walls, Itamar Silva, will be in charge.

Sanitization in Santa Marta[editar | editar código-fonte]

Over the last weeks the City Halls started prevention and disinfection procedures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in downtown Rio de Janeiro, near the ferry boats, the subways and areas of intense transit. Why not use them in the favelas as well?


We are doing it ourselves!

Through donations and volunteer work, we have been able to take preventive actions of disinfection of streets, alley ways and the Santa Marta ferry. We need cleaning and hygiene materials and personal protection equipment (EPI) for volunteers.

Campanha de Solidariedade feita por trabalhadores da Fiocruz para apoiar moradores de Manguinhos

We are a group of workers from Fiocruz that came together to promote  solidarity  in Manguinhos, in Rio de Janeiro.

Since social distancing has been the main strategy to stop the spread of COVID-19, thousands of informal workers have no income and are unable to provide for themselves and their families.

That’s why we are organising a fundraising campaign. The fund will enable us to buy household essentials, such as food, hygiene and cleaning supplies, for residents of Manguinhos.

We count on your solidarity!

SOS Port Zone Communities[editar | editar código-fonte]

The communities of the Port Zone in Rio de Janeiro face greater risks of transmission, mainly in the more vulnerable areas where there is no access to clean water and also because there are no local markets within the communities, nor in nearby regions (the last market, in Senador Pompeu, closed down early this the year).

The challenge to practice social distancing is enormous. To prevent the entrance and exit in the favelas, we need help to provide essential food supplies. Moreover, there is also the shortage of money, which is reality for most people in the community, especially now that informal workers cannot work.

Regions in the focus of response: Morro da Providência, Morro do Pinto and Morro da Conceição.

Ocupa Tijuca[editar | editar código-fonte]

Brasil is going through a dreadful crisis. The struggle against the new coronavirus makes social distancing mandatory. This leads the majority of people to lose their income, especially most informal and underpaid workers.

In Tijuca, many families are deprived of supplies in favelas and communities. They survive without basic sanitation, in crowded places, with very few resources. This whole situation has worsened in this crisis.

Many calls for help are coming to us, such as from the Association of Salgueiro Residents , from the Indiana, of São Camilo church, which is sending donations to Borel, and from a group of Morro da Formiga residents, which develops many projects in the community, such as the Formiga Verde community garden.

Due to the governments’ irresponsibility and lack of action, we decided to create a funding pool, to raise funds and donate food and cleaning materials. We commit to hold accountability and send pictures of all delivered donations!

Right now it’s time to be more compassionate than ever! You can also donate! We have already collected R$1500,00, lets increase that figure!

Online fundraising to support the prison system[editar | editar código-fonte]

Our penitentiary system lacks lots of resources, from medical care to hygiene supplies. And since March, visits have been prohibited to stop the spread of COVID-19. So now the group UJIMA and BABIY QUERINO are joining forces to raise funds to provide household essentials (such as food and personal hygiene supplies) for the inmates. Everything will be sent by post.

Fundraising campaign for household essentials - CMP - Central de Movimentos Populares[editar | editar código-fonte]


As we face the COVID-19 pandemic, the Central de Movimentos Populares (Central for Popular Moments) of Rio de Janeiro, founded in 1993, runs this response to strengthen and support the donations of household essentials (food and hygiene supplies) for those in need.

Several places need our help, from squattering areas in Chiquinha Gonzaga to favelas like Morada da Conquista. Thousands of people have seen no assistance from governments, from the homeless, informal workers to the unemployed. As the renowned sociologist Betinho used to say, hunger can’t wait.

Help the favelas with essential items. We welcome any contribution. We count on you!

Raising Money for movements and favelas in São Paulo[editar | editar código-fonte]

UMM-SP - Solidarity towards squatters in São Paulo[editar | editar código-fonte]

The União dos Movimentos de Moradia de São Paulo (UMM-SP - Squatters Movement) started the distribution of emergency care packages with a focus on urban squattering (both buildings and land), favelas and self-managed joint efforts. Acting in the city’s outskirts for more than 30 years, in the last few week, the UMM, has sought to identify the regions and families that are in a state of more vulnerability so that donations can get more quickly to those in dire need. Our community leaders  are working tirelessly in order to raise data about the needs of the populations so as to provide care in order to minimize the socio-economic effects of the COVID and to make sure people will be able to abide by the social distancing rules.

This initiative is part of a set of actions by popular urban movements. In addition to solidarity, we need to continue fighting for the State to fulfill its role, with the implementation of public policies that reduce the economic and social impact on the daily lives of families, and a complete change in the federal macroeconomic policy, which should be guided by needs of the working class, and not for the financial market interests. Guaranteeing health for the entire population is essential, for example, all families should have decent housing and access to a free, universal, public, health system so that together with measures such as the “emergency basic income”, it is necessary to resume policies like Minha Casa Minha Vida Entidades and overturn Constitutional Amendment 95, which transfers public health resources to the financial market and fosters the private sector. It is also necessary to reinforce the struggle for the social function of the property so that empty land and buildings can house those who do not have a place to live.


Our collection and distribution work will continue in the coming months and involves the capital, the metropolitan region of São Paulo, the coast and the interior.


Favelas for Peace

Morro Santana in Porto Alegre[editar | editar código-fonte]

With the advancement of COVID-19 in Porto Alegre, simple measures pointed out by doctors and specialists as fundamental in the fight against the virus, such as washing hands with water and soap and using hand sanitizers, become something that is often impossible for parts of the population, especially for residents of villages and the outskirts, where life is marked by precarious access to  basic sanitation and running water. The new reality caused by the pandemic worsens the health and life  of these people.


We are raising funds to  purchase hygiene items identified as essential to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (hand sanitizers, liquid soap, dish soap, bleach) and food. Donate through our online fundraiser.
