In the rugged and isolated mountains of the Sacred Valley in Peru, access to care is difficult and expensive.
Most of the inhabitants are farmers who barely live off their land or their few heads of cattle.
Their health problems are often poorly treated, leading to their aggravation.
For example, many amputations are needed when simple care at the right time could have prevented them.
The Kausay Wasi Clinic, founded by a Peruvian/American couple in 2005, offers a full range of hospital care at a very low cost to those who can afford it and free of charge to those who cannot.
Today, private donations only fund the clinic.
WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES IN PERU
Tierra's Angels offers you to sponsor an entire family from one of these villages near Machu Picchu by providing them full medical coverage for one year.
The angels who sponsor families receive pictures, complete descriptions of the families, and a full report on the medical care during the year of sponsorship. They should be able to exchange mail with them (in Spanish or Quechua) once a year.
Tierra's Angels also raises funds for the prosthetic department in the clinic because it is where the needs are the greatest and the funds least available. Today, the organization provided 16 prostheses to children and adolescents! Check the stories of our sponsored patients here.
NEW! Tierra's Angels now sponsors university scholarships to the young adults who received prostheses from the clinic. Since the end of 2021, we sponsor 3 university scholarships. The students want to study communication, accounting, and psychology. Read more about their stories here!
