Anti-parasitic medications delivered to 450 children October 2016

We are very excited to report that we have partnered with the Wakatinku foundation (http://inmed.org/who-we-aremission-and-vision/) and Inmed (http://inmed.org/who-we-aremission-and-vision/)  a Peruvian humanitarian organization, to provide mebendazole, an anti-parasitic medication, to all 3 of the schools that we have sponsored. Because these children live in close contact with animals, gastrointestinal parasites are common and chronic and lead to intestinal symptoms and malnutrition. The directors of the schools will work with the local health clinics to administer the medications to the children twice yearly for the next five years, improving their quality of life and basic health.  Below you can see photos of Valentin and the director of the school at Choquecancha.
