Peru Project

SElogo

Sembrando Esperanza Peru can roughly be translated to "that as a seed of hope for Peru". The project runs a treatment center for tuberkulossjuka, socially disadvantaged individuals in Peru's capital Lima.

The socially vulnerable individuals living on the street are living under poor living conditions that make them vulnerable to infectious diseases such as tuberculosis. These people generally have little or no education and are therefore difficult to defend their rights. They are often discriminated against when they seek care because they lack the financial means, they rarely have access to health care. The people who received the treatment center that we are helping to drive in Lima are receiving treatment for his illness, food, accommodation and social support. The goal is to be healthy and get away from life on the street. When they have become healthier so they receive depending on their own interests help with training or to find work.

The project team in Gothenburg helping to arrange financing through to find sponsors as well as organize events like pub evenings and lectures. The work itself in Lima says local people in place with the teacher and social worker Jenny Huamán Sulca spearheaded. We provide also a volunteer exchanges to the project which provides care students from Sweden a chance to experience how the care for these vulnerable individuals work in Peru. IFMSA-Sweden's biggest task is to arrange financing for the project. We convey even volunteers to the home in Lima.
