2020 has posed some serious challenges, but AID/WATCH remains active!

“With Aid/Watch we know that if our lives are threatened because of our work as Indigenous environmental defenders we could easily call on them for support, they would be there.

Our relationship is like connective tissues. It is very empowering. Our partnership, our collaboration and our mutual solidarity can be seen in the effectiveness of our work over the past two years.

– Emmanuel Peni, Project Sepik
