Support Playa Muerto

Without external support, the people of Playa Muerto struggle to make ends meet and one of the last intact Emberá communities will eventually disappear (read here why).


Your donation will help:

  • Carry through much needed infrastructure improvements and maintenance, e.g. for drinking water filters, solar-powered lighting, boat engine repairs, purchase of tools, etc.

  • Pay for educational materials such as text books, notebooks, and other stationary

  • Cover the cost of healthcare emergencies, such as transport to the next hospital by boat

  • Bridge a food shortage in case of crop shortfall by covering supplementary rice purchases



Every contribution counts - even 10 Dollars make a big difference!
