How the Amazon tribes are succumbing in mass to the Covid-19?
Take Action Now!

Oscar Soria – Avaaz Unsubscribe

I made the first call, and cried. Then I made a hundred more — talking to Amazon chiefs and elders throughout the rainforest.

The voices changed, but it was all one story: of earth’s most resilient people, passionate guardians of the forest, facing complete annihilation by Covid-19. It’s killing their elders, their children, wives, and warriors.

One man was days from any hospital, and his wife was sick. The next time we spoke, she was dead. And yet he couldn’t stop to grieve. Too many of his people still needed help.

The scale of the suffering nearly broke me — but instead, I got to work on a plan.

I’ve now mapped out the Amazon’s most vulnerable communities and what they need to survive.

I know where they are, and how we reach them — and I’m hopeful, because with just one good fundraising response from the Avaaz community, we can save thousands of lives. Medicine, covid tests, urgent food aid — we can deliver it all.
We can get funds into these remote communities, fast.
Already, thanks to the power of small donations from many of us, we’ve just helped over 35,000 indigenous families across the Amazon.

We can:

  • Provide vital Covid-19 testing kits, medical supplies, and food packages for desperate families;
  • Fund mobile health facilities and makeshift ICU beds in remote areas and rebuild rundown health centres;
  • Buy vital communication equipment so communities can coordinate evacuations, report infections, and call for help.
