Humans are as much a part of the forest ecosystem as any other species. The villages that you support have lived in harmony with the rainforest for countless generations.
Cool Earth knows that supporting the communities that live in the forest is by far the most effective way of protecting it for the long-term.
The greatest cause of infant mortality and sickness in the communities we work with is diarrhoea caused by bacterial contamination. This can be reduced by 90% simply by washing hands with soap.
Thanks to you, we can provide simple, affordable health care to forest villages. This helps them to become stronger and puts them in a better position to generate sustainable incomes, and resist the temptation to accept money from loggers.
Healthy families mean healthy forest.
