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.
