Thanks to the support received from all our donors, and organizations such as PAHO Latin America, action for solidarity, Laboratorios Roemmers, Fundakeneeth, and group 9 of the Venezuelan air forces, we were able to deliver medicines to more than 1200 people in the communities of Guara, Lajapelá , Guayabalito, Fundo San Pablo, Pozoterekay and Yaviajé in Alto Ventuari, Manapiare Municipality in Amazonas state. It was a trip of more than 800 km by road from Caracas to get to Puerto Ayacucho, 40 minutes of flight from Puerto Ayacucho to San Juan de Manapiare, 2 weeks sailing the Ventuari river and walking more than 5 hours to distribute more than 500 kg of medicines among the most isolated communities of the H people, üottüjja. We are currently preparing our next trip to the Caura River region (Bolívar State) for next April, where we hope to distribute medicines and tools for the sarrapia harvest. Thanks to this harvest, various communities of the Yekwana people survive without working in the illegal mining that threatens the biodiversity of the Caura National Park.

Indigenous population cared since August 2020

Thanks to your donations, and the contribution of various organizations such as PAHO Latin America, we have been able to bring medicines and medical care to 3 hard-to-reach indigenous communities of the Pemón people in Bolívar state (Pirmaken, Purpurken and Itüruka); and 4 indigenous communities (Botellón de agua linda, Gavilán, Alto Carinagua and Betania topocho) from the Jivi and Huöttuja peoples in the state of Amazonas.
The total number of people benefited was 1850 and the amount of medicines delivered was more than 600 kilos.

We have also held ecological film screenings to educate people in the communities about the great problem that illegal mining represents in terms of quality of life.

At this time, we are collecting donations to carry out a health mission to one of the most difficult to access areas in the entire state of Amazonas: Alto Ventuari.

To get to that place we will have to travel more than 900 kilometers by road to Puerto Ayacucho, take a plane for an hour and navigate, and even walk, for more than a week to reach one of the indigenous communities in that area.

We hope, with your help, to be able to provide medical care to more than 1000 people in that very isolated area during the month of January 2021.

NEW DATES FOR THE UBIK PROJECT 2020

Fundación Nativo, in its vocation to serve the most disadvantaged indigenous communities in southern Venezuela, has been working tirelessly and has managed to solve all the unforeseen events and challenges that have arisen to carry out The Ubik Project. We inform you that the next health day will begin on August 3 and will end on the first week of September this year.

The project's mission is to serve the indigenous communities that are most disadvantaged in southern Venezuela; In this mission we will be visiting a total of 25 communities in the Medio Caura and Alto Erebato areas, where approximately 2,000 brothers from the Yekuana and Sanema peoples will be served.

Thanks to the efforts and the incorporation of International Medical Corps, we have managed to overcome the difficulties that have arisen due to the lack of fuel, the confrontations caused by mining dynamics, weather conditions, and obtain the necessary financial support to meet the goals established.

This mission will have a team made up of specialists from different areas of health, for a total of 47 people, who will be working for 30 days to successfully carry out this event. At the end, we will be talking about our results, so that you are aware of our work and can continue supporting us to reach more indigenous communities.
