 Minas Fund


On November 5th 2015 Brazil saw its worse ecological disaster in decades, one whose social and environmental effects will have a long term impact on the Rio Doce region. As two water dams in the town of Mariana broke, a surge of mud washed over the region, destroying thousands of hectares of protected land, displacing hundreds of families, and leaving many dead. 
The Minas Fund will invest in initiatives in the state of Minas Gerais, with a special focus on supporting civil society organizations with socio-environmental initiatives in the affected region.
