Poverty, Poor Health, Environmental Destruction
Borneo’s lush rain forests are being lost at a rapid rate. Forests regulate air, water, climate, and even disease. When the rain forest suffers, so do we. But for many people, cutting down trees to sell is the only way to afford health care. When we suffer, so does the rain forest.
Many families are forced to make the impossible choice between short-term survival and future well-being. But because their choices impact the rain forest and the climate, these choices impact us all.
