Video: Medical Support for the People of Tuke

In order to protect the pristine rainforests of Tuke, we need to support its custodians, the people of Tuke who have looked after this land for thousands of years. Healthcare, next to education, is one of the critical requirements of this village. Pregnant women are of the most in need. Expectant mothers are a 24-hour hike through dense, slippery jungle with multiple river crossings, away from the nearest hospital. Many must do this hike during labour and far too many die along the way. WildArk wants to help the people of Tuke to build a medical facility that means that help is right on hand in the village. We will then work with local partners to ensure that trained medical staff are available when needed. Donate today at: bit.do/wildark
