How to Protect Forest Peoples?
To protect the people of the forest, we need to keep them safe in their territories, with healthy food and hygiene items so they don't have to leave their homes. Help the people of Riozinho da Liberdade, their health providers and allies to be safe and face the pandemic with the strength of the forest.


Distribution of masks and sanitizers for families. Expansion of health care with the work of health professionals, in partnership with teams from the Indigenous Health Districts (IHDs) and the Unified Health System (UHS).
Purchase of essential food and hygiene products to strengthen the food, nutritional and health security of these communities.
Communication campaigns directed at families based in Indigenous Lands, Extractive Reserves and riverside communities in the State of Acre, against the Coronavirus.

About the Initiative
Our goal is to provide essential items for the protection of 300 families in the Riozinho da Liberdade Extractive Reserve. Each survival kit contains basic and local food products, sanitizers and masks. We will also assist in the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as surgical masks, gloves, sanitizers, among others, for the safety of health workers and their patients.

In addition to food products purchased in the local market, we will promote awareness campaigns using language aimed at traditional peoples.

With your support, 300 families living in the Riozinho da Liberdade Extractive Reserve will benefit from this campaign.


About The Rainforest Company
The Rainforest Company was created after its Founder & CEO Albana Rama travelled to the Amazon. The forest, the people, their values and their wondrous use of the açaí berry became the very foundation of The Rainforest Company. They set an example for the food industry by producing food which is in harmony with nature – using raw materials harvested sustainably and rewarding local farmers fairly for their work.

In the wake of COVID-19, the company has pledged to support the communities of Riozinho da Liberdade through this match-donation campaign. For each donation made on this page, The Rainforest Company will contribute an equal amount in your name in order to double your impact.
About the Union of Peoples of the Forest
The Union of Peoples of the Forest is an alliance of indigenous peoples, quilombolas, riverside communities and extractivists (including rubber tappers and coconut breakers), founded in 1985 under the leadership of the environmentalist Chico Mendes, aiming to defend their territories from the action of loggers and land grabbers. In 2020, indigenous leaders and representatives of extractive communities came together to reactivate their common commitments: The defence of their cultures and territories. "The struggle of 40 years ago was for the recognition of the territory and, now, it is for us to preserve our legacy"
