Urgent: A Maasai cry for help

I just received an urgent cry for help from Nashulai, the award-winning Maasai-led nature conservancy in Kenya that Avaaz helped to launch.

COVID-19 has devastated Nashulai, and the people behind this amazing conservation project are staring starvation and destitution in the face. The conservancy relies on tourism, and it's collapsed. As a result, there have been massive job losses amongst the Maasai who live there. There's no money, no food, and no healthcare. With rangers laid off, and poverty rising, poachers could soon prey on the conservancy’s amazing wildlife.

Nashulai needs a miracle. And that miracle could be us.

Maasai elders have put together an emergency rescue plan to feed the people, set up healthcare facilities, and keep the conservancy protected. But to do it, they must urgently raise funds -- and that’s where we come in.

I know many of us are facing serious challenges of our own right now. But if we all chip in just the cost of a coffee, we can save Nashulai, and the wonderful people who live there. No other movement can raise the money fast enough -- to answer this cry for help, donate now.
