|2013 has gone by in a flash! At Alianza Arkana, it was a year of growth, learning, innovation and great achievement. Our work in Amazonian communities grew deeper roots and expanded to new horizons, as we focused on co-creating a more just and regenerative future for the Amazon and her people.
We are truly grateful to all of you who have made this support possible, and would like to take a moment to celebrate our key achievements over the past year.
Continuing the Fight Against Oil Contamination in the Amazon
This year, the Peruvian government has finally started to pay attention to the serious problem of oil contamination in the Amazon, calling for three states of Environmental Emergency. This was the culmination of years of work from indigenous federations and civil society groups, many of whom we have offered strategic, technical and financial support as they fight to have their rights respected.

We are working on the ground with Shipibo families to find solutions to local health and environmental problems.
