The Integral Project " Healthy Woman - Healthy House ", is an initiative born of the need of the women of the Community of Pampas Punta of the municipality of Sopachuy, who through their leaders and local authorities, request the Club Rotary - Sucre, to be able to support this initiative by transforming it into an integral project framed by the principles and values of Rotary International and its areas of action.

The Integral Project "Healthy Woman - Healthy House " is a project that encompasses the Pampas Punta community, with special emphasis in support of the Mother - Niñ @ binomial, which, being a vulnerable sector of the population, requires the greatest amount of aid in all areas that can be helped.

The project is born from the harsh reality in which the families of the Pampas Punta Community still live, families composed of single women, who for various reasons and other people were left with several children (between 4 to 13), immersed in a great poverty with a subsistence economy, with little local, regional or national support.

These Families, which will be supported, currently live in an area of the municipality, which has a special feature to be in the endemic area of "Chagas disease" or bite of the "Vinchuca" (vector), Chagas in a parasitic disease tropical endemic to America, caused by the "Tripanosoma Cruzi", parasite transmitted by the bite of the "vinchuca", which is found from Mexico to South America, however, the disease is more prevalent in rural regions of Latin America.

The project will implement programs of health education, diagnosis and treatment of prevalent diseases, emphasizing Chagas disease, within the area of action Prevention and Treatment of Diseases.

In the Maternal and Child Health area, it will carry out education activities to improve Maternal and Child Health, supporting better and greater access to essential medical services in the municipality.

Regarding the area of support for the Economic and Integral Development of the Community, the professionals of the Economic Area of Rotary Club Sucre in coordination with the local and departmental authorities, will promote a measurable, sustainable and sustainable economic development, benefiting the communities of the Project and to as many beneficiaries as possible.
