Story

The Amazon’s population has been one of the hardest hit by coronavirus in the world. Tefé is one of the most affected towns, where one in five residents has had coronavirus, according to a recent study. While the situation is improving in the urban centre of Tefé, the town is a hub for about 5,000 rural traditional and indigenous families, and the virus is now spreading to communities in the countryside where cases are currently increasing.

Since April, our 'Ajuda Amazônia' campaign, with the support of many fantastic partners, has already delivered more than 11 tonnes of food, thousands of reusable masks and hundreds of packages of cleaning products to hundreds of urban and rural families in this Amazonian region. We work in collaboration with local groups and associations to leave power and agency in local hands, and direct donations to the families most in need.

While many of us are starting to return to relative normality, the rural population of the Tefé region of the Amazon needs our help more than ever. That's why we continue our efforts to provide food and hygiene kits to those who need it most.

    Update from the Page owner

    A fantastic £2,000 has now been raised on this page! Most of this has already been spent on food and hygiene kits for families in Tefé and the region's communities. In the past few days, indigenous families in the Caiambé District have been some of the most recent recipients of our donations. We have also made a new partnership with a local union that supports fishing dependent families (colônia de pescadores), who have made a list of the families most in need of help, and will be delivering our donations to them later this week. Thank you!

    Good luck with your efforts. I stayed at Amazon Eco Lodge South of Manaus in December, and want to help the wonderful people I met. Got your info from Jim McDaniels, the Agent for the Lodge. Danny
