Healing the Land Project

Putumayo/Colombia

We are helping to protect and preserve delicate parts of the Amazon Rainforest. 

 

The message of the elders

For thousand of years the native people of these lands, the A’i people, have been looking after the forest and living in harmony with animals and elements. The modern way of life is now a serious threat to the environment and not only to the native people but also to the whole human race.  The forest is being consumed at an alarming rate, the animals are losing their habitat and the native way of living is not longer sustainable, forcing them into poverty and hunger. The forest is losing its capacity to create rain and the rivers are drying. The elders say we are reaching the point of no return, and they no longer can protect the land alone…. They need our help, we must take responsibility and work shoulder to shoulder with them to stop the destruction of our most precious treasure, the rain forest. Without the rain forest there will be no rain and no life can be sustained without water. What happens in the Amazon concerns us all.
