Project Report | May 26, 2020
An update on FTPF's project in Peru

By Lizzy Rainey | Programs Manager

Dear friends,

We wanted to give you a quick update on FTPF's project in Peru, especially in light of the unprecedented circumstances COVID19 has brought to the Loreto region and its capital of Iquitos, which has been hit very hard by the coronavirus due in large part to the fact that the city is surrounded by vast jungle and the only way to deliver much needed medical supplies and other essentials is by air or by boat.

Food security at these times is as important as ever, and we wanted to let you know we are still working hard to fight for sustainable nutrition for low-income, rural families in Loreto through our fruit tree planting and distribution programs. We are working with our partners at CONAPAC to continue growing a wide variety of fruit-bearing trees and native plants to be planted and distributed in early 2021.

There is so much uncertainly in the world right now, but we take some solace in the fact that over 12,000 trees are already growing as part of this project in communities along the Napo and Amazon Rivers, serving as an important step towards food and economic security. If you are able to make a contribution to support this work, we would be very grateful; if not, you can show your support of FTPF during these times by sharing this fundraiser with your friends and family or on social media.

Have a very happy Memorial Day and stay safe!
