We are a group of doctors and people of different professions born in Arequipa, whose objective is to gather as many resources as possible to provide doctors, health professionals, administrative and assistance personnel of hospitals and health centers in Arequipa, with equipment and instruments that allow them to provide their professional services in an adequate and safe way.
We are driven by the courage and dedication of women and men who demonstrate their humanity in these times of fear and pain.
During these months of action, we have been supported by companies such as Gloria S.A., Compañía de Minas Buenaventura S.A.A., FLUOR and fantastic Arequipans from all over the world. We have managed to provide PPE to the hospitals Honorio Delgado y Goyeneche, Cerro Juli Care and Isolation Center, health centers in Paucarpata, Mariano Melgar, Manuel Prado, Hunter, San Martín, reaching Camaná, Mollendo, Chiguata and Chuquibamba, as well as Resident Doctors from different hospitals in our city.
- We must emphasize that the PPE requirements were enormous and increasing everyday.
- At some point the PPEs meant the only protector of their lives against the risk of death due to the viral load to which they were exposed on a daily basis. As harsh and pathetic as it reads.
