Kimi Island Fire Relief Fund 

On October 15, 2017, Kimi Island, a fishing community neighboring Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary was completely devastated by a massive fire that swept across the island. Two people died and over 200 more were injured. More than 4,700 residents are now homeless and without the most basic essentials. This tragic fire did not in any way, effect the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary. The chimps and staff are 100% safe and the sanctuary is operating as usual.

The Red Cross and UNHCR have provided a couple of large tents and porridge but the community is in desperate need of fuel, water, pots & pans, blankets and food.

In partnership with Chimpanzee Trust we are urgently asking for donations of any amount. Classified as an emergency situation, we are able to wire the funds immediately to Chimpanzee Trust in Uganda and your donation will go directly to the Kimi Island Relief Fund.
