The doctors arrived in Cerro de Pasco

Thanks to our decade-long pressure the central government of Peru has finally acted for the health of children in Cerro de Pasco.

47 doctors reached the highest city of the world and they spent 15 days in the city to monitor the situation of heavy metals pollution and heavy metals affectation. The brigade includes specialists in neurology, gynecology, lung specialists, pediatric doctors. They will be able to perform blood tests and general medical checks.

The doctors will focus their attention on the 36 communities where we have been able to obtain the health emergency situation declaration, and they will focus on lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium and other toxic metals.

This is a huge win for us, as it is since 2008 that we are asking medical assistance for people in Cerro de Pasco. It is also important to underline how this assistance has arrived just a few weeks after we brought a medical brigade to Cerro de Pasco.

Things start to move also at the altitude of Cerro de Pasco and we are expecting to see some very big results very early.

Meanwhile stay tuned for all our activities related with the #GivingTuesday!
