In May, a major fundraising effort led to over $20,000 in donations to support internet connections in some of the most remote Cofan villages, which do not have internet or phone reception. This has been a long-term goal for Cofan people so they don't have to migrate to larger cities for access to educational opportunities and resources, as well as be able to reduce their travel in general. During the pandemic this need became especially acute in order to reduce risk of infection with outsiders. The Amazon has been especially hard hit by Covid. Essential medical and food supplies are being coordinated over the internet now.
