Impact on Indigenous Communities
The impact of COVID-19 in indigenous communities is still unclear but it is thought to have a devastating impact.
As the world struggles to survive COVID-19: our most difficult task is to prevent the virus from reaching the very vulnerable indigenous and creole communities in remote and underserved areas in Venezuela.
Preventative health practices in these communities are minimal, or even non-existent. Our main challenge is to keep these communities safe from COVID-19 as it would very rapidly spread into other communities through their daily activities.
Your contribution will allow us to keep over 4,000 vulnerable patients safe through the purchase of essential PPE for our volunteer doctors and healthcare personnel at each of the rural clinics in the communities we serve.
