In this opportunity, we want to talk about Sergio, who is a talkative child, and he develops like any other little one. He is in the 3rd. Primary grade and his favorite course is mathematics, he practices soccer in the goalkeeper position. He also enjoys playing Free Fire with his 9-year-old friend Yenco.

In the accident, he remembers that her dog “Charllotte” disappeared and that she was also affected by the fire, however, after a few weeks they found out that the dog was fine, but that she had been picked up and admitted to a veterinarian, where after 5 months was discharged; today he has another companion called “Pulgoso”, whom they found on the street and decided to adopt him. Sergio really enjoys playing with his pets.

In the following video you can see Sergio in his therapies, he has already been in treatment for more than a year and specialists say that it is likely that as he grows and due to the complications of his scars, he will require surgeries to improve the function of his upper and lower limbs. 

We thank you for providing support to 4 patient victims of the tragedy that occurred in Villa El Salvador, the same one that has almost reached the goal, so if you wish to continue collaborating with the treatment of burn children, we invite you to join our new project Let's give hope to 150 burned children in Peru.

All the best for you!

With gratitude,

The whole Team ANIQUEM

Sebastián is one of the survivors of the tragedy of Villa El Salvador in Lima, he is a 3-year-old boy, who loves “tallarines verdes” and the typical Peruvian food called "ceviche", he is also passionate about playing with his carts. He currently lives with his father and aunt, the little one still does not remember that he lost his mother and older sister in this terrible accident.

This child has severe second and third degree burns equivalent to 65% of his body, at the beginning it was difficult for him to get used to his compression garments, however now he plays and runs as before, and another good news is that the itching of his little body has dropped by 70%. However, the use of the silicone thermoplastic mask, if it bothers him a little, but the father does not stop monitoring its use, and another problem, presented by Sebastián, is that the thumb of his right hand tends to pull back because of the graft he has, so that through play the father manages to move his finger, you can see the short video about it.

ANIQUEM is very happy with the results and with the family's commitment, although Sebastian has a long way to go, he is not alone, he has the support of many people with great hearts who want to see a smile again in this little one.

That is why we say thank you very much!

Please take care and all the best.

With gratitude,

The whole Team ANIQUEM

In January 2020, there was an explosion due to a gas leak from a tanker located in Villa El Salvador in Peru, just 11 survived. Unfortunately, they arrived at ANIQUEM in a critical mental and physical state as many of them lost direct relatives. 

One of the survivors is called María. She is an optimistic woman eager to overcome the past and move on with her life. María is also known for being a perseverant worker, she used to wake up every morning to her orange juice stand located on the corner of her house and dedicate all morning to sell juice to her neighbors. Unfortunately, due to the accident, she has been forced to paralyze her working activities. She has two daughters and three lovely nieces, one of her daughters is named María (after her), she is the one who lives with her mother and takes care of her with love and dedication. Since the accident, María remained hospitalized for three months due to the severe burns on 35% of her body, needing grafts and intense rehabilitation to recover the lost movements. 

Nine months have passed since the accident and María remembers the day it happened as it was yesterday.  She is confident that someday all that occurred will stay behind considering that new opportunities are waiting ahead for her. María still cannot walk to her fullest, however, she has started to slowly move and to climb stairs carefully. Moreover, we can see how she has started to relax and entertain herself by braiding her hair (like she loves to) and knitting scarves. We are certain that she is going to carry on successfully and soon she will be returning to her orange juice stand as she desires to. For that to take place we are aware that she still has a long way to go, except she will never be alone, she counts on the support of kind-hearted people.

María is one of the cases of the Villa Salvador explosion and the ANIQUEM team is really happy with the results, that is why we are forever grateful for your valuable contribution. 

Please take care and all the best.

With gratitude,

The whole ANIQUEM team
