Medical Relief for the Siona People of Cuyabeno


The Siona people are an indigenous community living in the Ecuadorian Amazon and Putumayo  Department of Colombia.  Today, there may be fewer than 500 Siona people on the planet!

Most Ecuadorian Siona live on the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve in Sucumbios. In addition to traditional subsistence farming, many were employed in Cuyabeno tourism since the 1990s. The religion of the Siona people is animistic with many spirits living inside of trees, bugs, plants, etc.

At least twice a year, Wichana brings a medical brigade to Cuyabeno to provide medical and dental care to the local population who live in this remote area that is accessible only by boat.

Wichana Foundation is looking for donations to support our medical brigade.  Can you please open your heart one more time to help a precious endangered culture and people survive? Donations received through the foundation are tax deductible in the US.
