While rural Peru is in great need of improved access to medical care, the Covid-19 Pandemic caused the tribal villagers to struggle to obtain food due to a strict lockdown. With the agreement of the generous donors, it was decided that providing health care would not matter if they starved before they received it. And so, the money was used to provide desperately needed food staples to provide relief to 5 villages, about 100 families. Each family was provided staples like rice, beans, and cooking oil to aid them in surviving through the Pandemic. Proper nutrition is also closely linked to overall health. Indigenous people in rural Peru often struggle to obtain enough nutritious food, but the Pandemic brought it to a level of severity that we have never seen before. The tribal leaders were extremely thankful for the help. They had felt isolated and forgotten, but thanks to you they were reminded that they are not alone and that people care about them and their wellbeing.
We will continue to work to provide the medical care that they need.
