Dom Phillips and Bruno Pereira were brutally murdered in the Vale do Javari region of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest (near the borders with Peru and Columbia) on the 5th June 2022. They were reporting on an intensifying conflict between the indigenous people (many of whom have never been in contact with modern society) and groups engaged in a range of illegal activities, including fishing, logging, mining and drug trafficking in their reserves. Dom was reporting on efforts to help the indigenous people defend themselves, work in which Bruno had been engaged, together with members of UNIVAJA (Union of Indigenous Peoples of Vale do Javari,

Following the disappearance of Dom and Bruno, the indigenous people worked tirelessly on the search and rescue mission. They were the first to find evidence of the attack which we hope will bring the attackers to justice. The families are eternally grateful for these efforts.

In memory of Dom, and Bruno, Sian Phillips, Dom's sister, have organised this fundraiser which has now closed. Funds have been transferred to UNIVAJA to support the activities underway to counter threats from illegal activities in the reserves.

We are now raising funds to help complete the book which Dom Phillips was researching when he was killed. If you would like to support this effort or find out more see the following link
