Our Wayuu artisans are isolated by coronavirus and face another threat: Hunger.
We need your help!
Colombia’s nationwide quarantine has paralyzed majority of businesses based around small urban centers and has left our Wayuu woman-artisans - head of households - unable to buy their week’s rice, fish or cornmeal. The northern Colombia coastal state of La Guajira, where the Wayuu tribe is located, make up about half the 800,000 residents.
Our Wayuu artisans now find themselves hammered by quarantine-related hunger and our Arawayuu team is doing everything we can to fight this threat. As part of our mission values is to give back to our community and support our artisans in any way we can... But we can't do it without your support!
