Challenge

Poor communities near the Moche Valley in Peru are faced with a dearth of heritage education programs and an abundance of community needs, from schools and health clinics to adequate sewage treatment systems. Our goal is to build a health clinic to serve over 10,000 people. We will also organize health fairs to provide health info and free medical care, teach elementary education classes on sanitation and heritage preservation, and develop sustainable trash disposal and recycling programs.

Solution

The regional clinic will provide treatment to locals of the Moche Valley who otherwise would not have access to health care. Education health fairs will help sustain healthier living standards.

Long-Term Impact

Quite simply, the people of Bello Horizonte and the outlying communities will have accessible health care. The total population of the clinic service area is about 10,000.
