Support to RS

Rio Grande do Sul is the home of the South Summit in Brazil. Since May of this year, the state has been facing the biggest environmental catastrophe Brazil has seen in recent history. More than 90% of its cities have been affected by the floods caused by heavy rains and, in total, more than 2 million people have been directly affected, which is why South Summit is mobilizing its international network to help Rio Grande do Sul. 

The Fund will support the local actions of Instituto Floresta and Instituto Caldeira aimed at residents affected by the floods.
