The Latest On: disaster relief
Your generosity continues to reach Quechua people with supplies to fight COVID-19! In November, hundreds of residents of Picotani received your gifts of love.
Thank you for your generous gifts that are providing new clothes for your Casa Chapi kids while they learn at home.
Each of your Casa Chap students is special. When we found out that Janeth couldn’t access virtual learning at her home, Alejandro went the extra miles to take her to her sister’s home where she could continue her schooling.
Your love and kindness is providing Covid-19 relief for our Casa Chapi families that will continue until Peru reopens. See how you can help.
The Madre Antonia Community Kitchen was officially inaugurated on March 27th in a joyful community celebration. It will provide a minimum of 108,000 hot meals a year. We are extremely grateful for your efforts to make this possible and bring back a source of stability for this small community in the Colca Valley.
We are happy to report that Ichupampa is rising from the rubble left by an earthquake in August 2016. Thanks to you, the Sister Antonia Memorial Kitchen in Ichupampa is nearing completion. The Quechua Benefit team was onsite last week, and the building will be up and running no later than March 15th.
Construction has been progressing extremely well on the Sister Antonia Community Kitchen in Ichupampa. The crews got the foundations in, the first floor walls up, and the second floor poured in record time. We are currently ahead of schedule.
Construction started last week with the demolition and removal of the existing building. This week the foundations are being dug. Over the next 16 weeks, you will see the construction rise up. We are targeting a mid-March completion.
Today, the reconstruction effort is in full swing, the money has been raised, the contracts with the municipality are signed, the site is being cleared, and Dale is in Peru again to begin construction. Quechua Benefit’s wish is that the new construction, the town’s first since the earthquake, will provide people with the understanding that they are not alone. That someone sees their struggle and wants to do something about it.
