FIRST TIME WORKING ONLY IN LIRCAY Needed 2 preparation trips: to obtain a full knowledge of the area To prepare solutions to obvious problems To work with local authorities To overcome continuous break-ups in the Local Hospital: 3 Directors in 8 months.
Women now have a very prominent role on Andean Communities and Society. A positive and unplanned consequence of the terrorist period that killed over 70 thousand peasants, mostly males, led to this. Women filled the empty spaces.
16 beds for 65,000 local people: 50% usually occupied with pregnant women to deliver, 4 beds for males, 4 for children. A lot of empty spaces filled with debris. No proper storage. Too small pharmacy. Minimalist Lab, 2 Surgical rooms, one empty, one semi-functional. X-ray without automated developer…and more, and more.
Needed: plans, construction, supervision. DONE just on time to start the Mission. Provided the beds and equipment. We also set up the second Surgical room and upgraded the first one. We provide all needed materials for the work.
