COVID-19 in the Brazilian Amazon
Coronavirus is having a devastating impact on families in remote communities of the Amazon.
These communities are surrounded by forests and rivers with no access to roads or air transport, and have limited access to information, food and hygiene supplies. People seriously ill with COVID-19 need to travel an average of 9 hours to reach a hospital.
We are supporting our partner in Brazil, the Sustainable Amazon Foundation (FAS), to protect the lives of 19,000 families against COVID-19 in the Brazilian Amazon.
