We are currently working with the following organizations:

Samusocial Peru, based in Huaycan (poor neighborhood near Lima), created by the French NGO Samusocial de Paris, they operate two ambulances (one of which was bought by the Children of Peru foundation) that go daily to Huaycan in search of people (mainly children) in need of immediate medical assistance. We financed the construction of new classrooms in the Huaycan high-school as well as a program to fight against tuberculosis and also several yearly operating costs of the ambulances.
