Thanks to your generosity and support, the community of Alto Cayma in the City of Arequipa now has a tuberculosis clinic. We asked for your help and you responded. Thank you.
Through your donations, we have just completed construction of a tuberculosis treatment room for the Ministry of Health Rafael Belaunde Clinic in Alto Cayma.
Tuberculosis has been steadily on the rise in underserved communities around Peru. Much of the new cases are highly drug resistant TB and require ongoing treatment and careful management. The new TB treatment room at the Rafael Belaunde Clinic provides a dedicated space for offering comprehensive treatment and prevention services for the entire community of Alto Cayma.
The clinic expects to start seeing patients out of the TB room in the next week and we hope to have a small celebration with our community partner Father Alex Busuttil sometime this summer.
For now, thank you so much for your support!
