Mision Huascaran - March 2021 Progress Report

To our donors,

 

The “Mision Huascaran” team wishes you and your loved ones find themselves in good health. These times are challenging, but we face them with optimism and a lot of energy. We continue to advance in our educational project “Sponsor a child's education for USD 10 per month”. We would like to share our progress and thanks for all your support.

 

The new normal has led us to redefine the ways in which we provide education to children, especially in the rural areas where we work. The children of the educational institutions of Mancos and Carhuaz have already begun to receive educational material that is part of the Raz - Plus license, through which we seek to promote the development of reading comprehension. In addition, these books are intended to provide emotional support to children during the pandemic. All of the children are supervised by a team of volunteer educators who monitor the progress of the children remotely.

 

However, our work does not stop, and we want to continue providing quality education throughout the school year. For this reason, we hope to continue counting on your support so that the children of Mancos and Carhuaz continue to receive education. We would like to thank you before-hand for all the support we receive from you through GlobalGiving platform.

 

Wishing you all the best.

 

The Mision Huascaran Team

Medical Mobile Post - patient intake upto Nov 23rd

In rural areas, access to medical care is limited.

To solve this problem we present our "Mobile Medical Post" in alliance with DIRESA Áncash, which has 2 offices: for general medicine and dental care, in addition to 2 doctors, nurses and health personnel. And starting this month we have also nutrition counselling.

 

This unit is already in operation and will reach more than 50 towns in the districts of the Yungay and Carhuaz provinces. Our goal is to treat at least 1,500 people in a 12-month period during the period 2020 - 2022. We surpassed our patient intake goal by 227%
