Health and Joy Organization offers a better quality of life to people in the Tapajós and the Arapiuns riverbank communities.
This non-profit organization was started by doctors and healthcare educators with a background in circus and performance. Today, their work goes beyond physical healthcare, as they work together with communities to help improve education, local infra-structure, and develop projects that can generate income for families living off the forest.
