Seeding Hope Peru can be roughly translated as "to sow a seed of hope for Peru". We help to run a treatment center for tuberculosis sufferers and socially disadvantaged individuals in Lima, Peru. The people who have the street as infectious homes, live under poor living conditions that make them vulnerable to infectious diseases such as tuberculosis. These people usually have little or no training and therefore find it difficult to defend their rights. They are often discriminated against when they seek care, and because they lack the financial means so they rarely have access to health care. The people who received the treatment that we help to drive in Lima receiving treatment for his illness, mat, shelter and social jacking. The goal is for them to get healthy and get away from life on the street. As they have become healthier, so they depend on their own interest, help with training or finding work.
Our primary focus has been to help the TB sick people, but as the project has grown, we have also begun to take in other socially vulnerable groups who find it difficult to get help from the community. For example, we received the disabled and elderly individuals who have found it difficult to get help from elsewhere. Under 2018 opened a completely independent living for vulnerable women. There, now lives around 25 women of mixed ages. Many of those staying at home has been involved in prostitution or are considered to have a high risk of ending up in prostitution. In the present, live total of about 140 people at home.
The project in Sweden's main task is to arrange financing for the project. We are mainly looking for stable sponsors (both businesses and individuals) who want to donate money every month so that the project may be a secure financial future. Work on the site in Peru organized by the teacher and social worker Jenny Huaman Sulca. More than half of the funds collected locally in Peru and the treatment center receives great support of local forces.
In addition to help with the financing of the home so we convey in the Swedish project volunteers to the home in Lima. We inform the public about how the situation looks in Peru by holding lectures and other events. We also send periodic newsletters to the people who are on our email lists with updates on what is happening on the project.
