The Covid-19 pandemic is the latest threat to households and habitats in the rainforest. But unlike droughts, loggers, typhoons and floods, coronavirus is hitting every rainforest community simultaneously. Supply chains are broken, fresh food prices have tripled and misinformation is spreading fast. 

Cool Earth’s long term focus will always be on building livelihoods, but in the last week, we have received requests for emergency aid from almost every one of our partner communities. With your support, we are committed to getting help to every family that needs it. Essential supplies of food and hygiene equipment are needed immediately to keep people safe and healthy, along with resources like seeds and tools to prepare for the coming months.

Thanks to Rentokil Initial who is covering every penny of our operational costs for this appeal, 100% of your donations to our Rainforest Resilience Campaign will go directly to rainforest families.

 

How we’re helping

Cool Earth is providing food, seeds, cleaning products and tools to rainforest communities



As a climate charity, Cool Earth helps protect the world’s most vulnerable against threats to their rainforest. From sea-level rise to drought, wildfires to deforestation, we work alongside people to protect their homes. To protect the rainforest tomorrow, Cool Earth must help people survive today.

Hand in hand with partner organisations on the ground, we’re getting food and supplies where they are most needed right now. We don’t know how long this crisis will last, but we will be here for rainforest people long after it ends.

Support families today and protect rainforest for the future.

It will cost £35 to provide a family of six with urgently needed food, first aid supplies, and seeds for the challenging months ahead.
