Program Description

The welfare of children is one of the most important responsibilities of society. But the poor conditions of the economy that exist in Peru, as well as hunger, malnutrition, unemployment and lack of good medical care, have caused us to have a high level of disability that affect children. This represents a health problem because of the impact on the quality of life of the child, the impact on the family and the resources that society must dedicate to their care.
