INCORPORACION DE SOCIOS

Fundación Nativo, in its vocation to serve the most disadvantaged indigenous communities in southern Venezuela, has been working tirelessly to solve all the unforeseen and challenges that have arisen to carry out such an important mission, visiting a total of 25 communities in the Caura and Alto Erebato areas, where approximately 2000 people from the Yekwana and Sanema communities will be served.

Among these difficulties that have arisen in a complex way we have the lack of fuel, confrontations caused by mining dynamics, unfavorable climatic conditions, which prevent the normal and safe transfer through the rivers to reach the dynamic areas, in addition to not achieve the necessary financial support to meet the established goals.

Thanks to these efforts we have managed to incorporate International Medical Corps. As a partner in our project and we have made a first meeting between their representatives and those of the communities to reassess the current conditions and the most suitable dates to carry out the first Sanitary Mission. We still do not have definitive dates until we have fuel but it was defined that by the end of March it is possible to solve the logistic details because the preparations have already begun.

Thanks to the incorporation of International Medical Corps. In addition to carrying out the specialists and the medical equipment necessary to carry out the assessments corresponding to the communities, it can carry out hygiene kits and perform toxicity tests on the population and its water sources. Relevant evaluations due to its exposure to mining conditions.

We have also been working to obtain funds to develop various craft transformation projects of the Yekwana people. Soon we will have more information about the development and outcome of these efforts for you.

 

 

 

Fundación Nativo en su vocación de servir a las comunidades indígenas más desfavorecidas del sur de Venezuela, ha estado trabajando incansablemente para solventar todos los imprevistos y desafíos que se han presentado para llevar a cabo una misión tan importante, visitar un total de 25 comunidades en las áreas del Caura y Alto Erebato, donde se atenderá a aproximadamente 2000 personas de las comunidades Yekwana y Sanema.

Entre estas dificultades que se han presentado de manera compleja tenemos la falta de combustible, enfrentamientos provocados por las dinámicas mineras, condiciones climáticas desfavorables, que impiden el normal y seguro traslado a través de los ríos para poder llegar a las zonas dinámicas, además de no lograr el apoyo económico necesario para cumplir las metas establecidas.

Gracias a estos esfuerzos hemos logrado incorporar a International Medical Corps. Como socio en nuestro proyecto y hemos realizado un primer encuentro entre sus representantes y los de las comunidades para reevaluar las condiciones actuales y las fechas más idóneas para llevar a cabo la primera Misión Sanitaria. Todavía no contamos con fechas definitivas hasta tener combustible pero se definió que para finales de marzo sea posible resolver los detalles logísticos porque ya se han iniciado los preparativos.

Gracias a la incorporación de International Medical Corps. además de llevar a cabo los especialistas y el equipo médico necesario para realizar las evaluaciones correspondientes a las comunidades, puede llevar a cabo kits de higiene y realizar exámenes de toxicidad de mercurio en la población y sus fuentes de agua. Evaluaciones relevantes debidas a su exposición a las condiciones de la minería.

Hemos estado trabajando también para obtener fondos para desarrollar diversos proyectos de transformación de artesanía del pueblo Yekwana.

Pronto tendremos para ustedes más información sobre el desarrollo y resultado de estos esfuerzos.
