Dear Donors,

Thank you so much for your support to finance the rehabilitation of 7 burned children in Peru. Our team, Kids and all their families are thankful for your generosity and support. Without your support we wouldn’t have made it this far.

Every year more than 15,000 children are burned in Peru and that is why ANIQUEM works to change this situation.

The pandemic has changed us all, some more than others, but our work cannot stop. In this period of confinement our children have done many things like making cakes with their mothers, making crafts and of course studying on line. They are very intelligent and most of them want to be doctors to heal scars like the ones they have.

Children receive physical and psychological treatment, thanks to your valuable contribution through GlobalGiving that has allowed to provide rehabilitation to children like Marco and Dianita, the majority of our patients, like them, live in poor areas of difficult access in Lima, so we hope to continue counting on your important help to improve the quality of life of children.

We send you our best wishes and hope you have a great day! 

The whole team of ANIQUEM

Dear donors,

Thank you so much for your support to finance the rehabilitation of 7 burned children in Peru. This is just a little way we can say thank you! Without your help we couldn't have gotten to where we are now. In our center we receive a new burned kid every day, and until today we have been able to give integral rehabilitation to more than 4600 children from our whole country.

Today I would like to introduce a brave little boy you are supporting with your donations. His name is Deivi, he’s 5 years old and comes from a poor town in northern Peru. 

In our country it is very common for families living in poverty to cook their food in an artisanal way: assembling a small fire with stones and firewood, on the ground. Deivi was only 3 years old when he didn't realize this; approached the wood-burning stove and pulled the hot pot of soup towards him, which caused severe burns on his face, chest, shoulders and arms.

The first thing his parents did was to pour cold water on the burns - that was very good - and then they took him immediately to the health center of his community, but unfortunately due to the severity of his burns, the doctors recommended his parents to take him to a hospital in Lima, our country’s capital.

Despite the difficult economic situation the family faces, his parents did everything in their power for him to continue the treatment. They arrived at ANIQUEM two days after the accident and he has not stopped receiving treatment for a single day. While mom and little Deivi come every three weeks to receive therapies, dad works very hard every day as a worker of any construction or farm to raise money.

If you would see everything that Deivi has improved in these years, you would be as amazed as I am right now. Your face now has a special and different brightness, as you can see in the photos I am attaching to this email. This little man has received many physical and occupational therapies, psychological treatment to overcome the trauma of the accident; facing all this with courage and the unstoppable support of their parents and our great staff.

I love seeing the before and after life of our patients. It makes me think that everything we do is paid just by seeing them happy and enjoying the life that every child deserves to have.

We are happy to witness how not only the face of our patients changes, but also their families recover their joy again. So we look forward to each check-up so they can tell us how they are doing.

The love that this little one feels for his mother is so great that we choose his photo for our greeting for Mother's Day in our social networks. On behalf of him, his mother and all our patients, I want to thank you again for your help and what that means for our organization.

Thank you again for all your support. We’re really blessed to count on you!!!

Thanks to you little Yarumi has a new opportunity!

She is getting better every day!
She is getting better every day!

Dear Donors,

Thank you so much for your support to finance the rehabilitation of 7 burned children in Peru. Our team, kids and all their families are thankful with you, for your generosity and support. Without your help we couldn’t have come this far.

In this opportunity I’d like to introduce you one of our most little angels (a.k.a patients) in ANIQUEM, her name is Yarumi and she is a warrior!

Little Yarumi was only 11 months old when an accident changed her life forever. She fell from her baby walker into a plastic bathtub full of hot water.

Thanks to your generosity Yarumi is receiving the treatments needed for an integral rehabilitation in ANIQUEM, which means physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological treatment, reinsertion into the society and special lycra garments to get better the scars in her face, torax and hands.

She and mom comes to ANIQUEM more than a year and I'm still amazed by all the difficulties that they have had overcome together in all this time, with another little lady and no help from the father. Yarumi’s mom never gave up and made everything to see her enjoying life like all the children do. And I’m so humbled to tell their story.

All of us can see her improvements in every check up; and see her running and jumping around our center hallways lights up our day. No more tears, she's truly happier thanks to you!

Today we don’t have enough words to tell you how happy we are. Your contribution is changing this little angel and mom’s life, thank you so much!

Thank you again for all your support. We’re really blessed to count on you!!!

Team ANIQUEM.

Mommy by her side as always :)
