Flooding in Brazil
Deadly seasonal flooding in parts of Brazil has devastated the country in recent weeks. Among the worst-hit communities has been the city of Petrópolis, where unprecedented heavy rainfall triggered a lethal mudslide on February 17th that killed more than 100 Brazilians and turned entire neighborhoods to muddy rubble.
Through CAF America, you can advise a grant in support of any validated nonprofit on the ground in Brazil, establish a fund to make a long lasting impact, or contribute to an already established fund.
