Text for the postcard:

A medical team travels to the farthest reaches of Brazil's Amazon jungle, where the #yanonamis live. Physicians, nurses, laboratory technicians and other professionals fly there once a month, to treat and prevent different diseases among this indigenous population.

Using and fueling the airplane has a very high cost. Brazil's Ministry of Health devotes R$26 million (about US$ 6 760 000) every year just to pay for flying time, as this exceedingly remote area of the Amazon can only be reached by air.
