Current Initiative: Health Brigade for the Putumayo Region of Colombia
Given the significant impact of our last Health Brigade initiative, we are looking to replicate this success to benefit more indigenous people and communities.
Under the stewardship of Taita Juanito Guilermo Chindoy Chindoy, traditional healer and native to the Inga tribe of the Putumayo region, we are bringing mobile clinics to remote regions that lack access and proximity to health resources. In these communities, health issues are increasingly prevalent due to pollution from the outside world. We are seeing a surge in issues such as malnutrition, diabetes, liver and kidney diseases, cardiovascular issues, anemia, pulmonary disease, parasites, and the list goes on.
These mobile clinics will provide natural healthcare to these communities, while also imparting health education and awareness to further empower their own self-care. We believe that by helping restore their physical health, these tribes can then garner the strength to further their work in land and culture conservation.
