Bindu Mathur is crowdfunding

raised of £1,600 target by 54 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,600 to help the favelas of Rio de Janeiro during the COVID 19 crisis

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


We are the owners of the award-winning guest house CASA BELEZA - - in Rio de Janeiro. Normally, we would be busy hosting tourists here Cidade Maravilhosa, but now we are now looking at how we can help poor families here in Rio, who have no work or income, nor savings.

I know that it is a difficult time for many of you, as all of our professional lives have been upturned, but even just a small amount of 5 USD or 5 Euros can go along way to help buy these basic necessities here in Rio. The money will buy basic food, cleaning products (there is a real need!), gas fuel for cooking and to purchase prescription medicines and diapers.

This is a small initiative with no overhead costs. We are using our intimate network of trusted employees, favela guides and community leaders to identify those in need and for distribution.

We hope the World will soon be in better in health, and that we can begin once again to share with travellers from all over the world our special corner of Rio de Janeiro.

Obrigada, Thank you, Gracias, Merci, Grazie, Danke Schon, Dhanyavad!


Bindu and Antoine

    In August we were able to help an additional 12 households with kids, just in time for Fathers Day!! We've decided to continue, because even though much has re-opened here, many are still without income, assistance and food for their families. So thank you for your continued support - even a small amount of 5 or 10 dollars makes a real difference! Hope you are all well and staying safe! Here's a thank you card from Priscilla, who is key to distributing (safely) the members of her community in need. We all are so grateful for the support! xo

    We were able to help another 13 households in July, and unfortunately the need is still great as many people with children have lost their jobs and have not been eligible for any government assistance. Thank you for donating! xoxo

    Hey Bindu, I stayed with you in 2018. I just found your email in my spam folder, luckily in time to still donate a bit. Great initiative! All the best!
