As part of our commitment in the fight against anemia and malnutrition, we have delivered medical equipment and supplies valued at US$10,300 for the screening and treatment of anemia in children aged 3 to 5. These actions have been focused primarily in the localities of Secocha and Urasqui, as well as in the populated areas of Venado, Posco Misky, and San Martín, belonging to the province of Camaná, Arequipa region.

The Mariano Nicolás Valcárcel district municipality, health posts in the populated areas of Secocha and Urasqui, the UGEL Camaná, six educational centers in the area, and parents have actively participated in this initiative, assuming responsibilities and goals within the framework of the Local Articulation Instance (IAL).

The pilot plan will last for 6 months, and with this effort, we aim to have a positive impact on the lives of over 1,000 boys and girls.

“Together, with concrete actions and thanks to multi-stakeholder efforts through the IAL, we continue working for a healthier and more promising future for the children of artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) communities. We appreciate everyone involved and the community supporting us in this endeavor,” Fidamar reported.

Nurturing the future of our children in Arequipa: together against anemia!
