COVID-19 RESPOND

  Misi bantu oa

#MisiBantuOA is a project run by Shaq Koyok, Gerimis Project, KUASA and KAMY specifically to coordinate and centralise the efforts for immediate relief to Orang Asli communities.

 

Our targets are the Orang Asli communities located in the interiors and communities living by the fringes of degraded forests - all now facing a severe economic and health crisis, as well shortage of supplies due to CMO amid COVID19.

Communities facing decades of environmental injustice and human rights violations will be disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and other future shocks including climate impacts.

 

As a group that fights for #ClimateJustice, KAMY through #MisiBantuOA will focus on sending aid to Orang Asli in the peninsula of Malaysia and co-building the Orang Asli open repository with our partners as part of our effort to increase the community resilience. 

 

#MisiBantuOA urges for transparent communication, information and resource sharing between government agencies and NGOs.


The loss of these crucial communities will cost us the fight for forest protection for climate mitigation & adaptation.

 

Often understated, ethnobotany and irreplaceable indigenous knowledge aids in our understanding of the forest health and composition among many others— including our relationship with the earth.

 

Help rebuild community resilience.
