Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Peru

Location: Jungle of Peru

Total Budget: $480,000

Area of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene



Needs:

The study made by the INEI (national institute of statistics and informatics) in 2017 in native communities (jungle and Andean mountain), showed that the most frequent diseases that affect these communities are diarrhea and vomiting and malnutrition/anemia and parasites.

The main cause of these diseases is the lack of water. The goal of this project is to provide chlorinated water as well as to coordinate with the health centers so in the future they provide the chlorine.

How the project will meet this needs:

Because to provide chlorinated water to native communities will allows them to improve their personal hygiene and prevent diseases, it will definitely improve people health.

Continuous water will allow them to make a better breeding and cultivation of plants, on a small scale, for their own consumption.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
