Urgent international support is needed Now!

These fundraising will support MST-Brazil and CUFA-Brazil in their campaigns to support rural population, so that hundreds of people can stay safe while their territories are ravaged by storms.

All the proceeds from the solidarity breakfasts, raffle and donations collected in Australia will support more than five hundred families who have been hit by the worst weather disaster the state of Rio Grande do Sul has ever experienced.

Any amount is welcome!

Thousands of people have now become climate refugees, sheltering in temporary locations, waiting for the water levels to drop. We know that it will be months before they have their lives on earth again and they will need a lot of support, because as well as the impact on their homes and belongings, their livelihoods have also been lost.

In Solidarity,

LASNET Collective
