Help Kurikindi and the Kichwa

Indigenous tribes in the Ecuadorian Amazon need our help to recover from a devastating and life-threatening oil spill!
 
In April this year the Ecuadorian rainforest suffered from one of the largest oil spills the country has seen.  As a consequence the bio-diverse eco system and the nearby tribes living on the riverbanks of the Napo and Coca river have suffered as their homes and enviorement have become toxic leaving them without water or food, and suffering from shocking health concerns while also dealing with the global Covid pandemic. 

An oil pipe  owned by international companies recently burst. It was sourcing oil from the Amazon in order to provide electricity and products for communities far removed from the indigenous population. It is now contaminating the local rivers and adjacent land. It creates serious health and survival issues for the local communities that depend on this primary source of water for drinking, washing, food provision and cooking. Alongside illnesses such as dangerous rashes, wounds and sores especially within children, it impacts the general health of the Amazon rainforest – a biodiversity hub that contributes to natural climate regulation and that we all benefit from as being the ‘lungs of the earth’.
At this time, since the spill happened in April 2020, alongside Covid-19, the promised aid from the government has still not arrived in many of these communities.

Kurikindi, is a shaman of the Kichwa tribe in the Amazon Rainforest with the mission to bring harmony to humanity and Mother Earth and has been working with people in the West for years to deeply connect them to nature. Now, his Amazonian tribe, alongside 48 other communities along the Napo River are facing a tragic emergency. There are only a few communities left in the world who still live in traditional ways, holding deep wisdom and connection to the natural environment. They need your protection now. 

He would like to ask for your financial help to support the clean-up of the Coca and Napo rivers and the impacted livelihoods: to provide urgently needed clean water for drinking, cooking and bathing, fund logistics and any necessary legal support required to help protect their indigenous and human rights and provide as much help as possible to the indigenous tribes in the affected area. 

They need your help now!

The longer the oil seeps into the wider landscapes the more long-term damage it will cause to people and the environment and the more difficult the clean-up becomes.

Thank you for your loving generosity. 

We thank you.
