THE STORY:

Hello everybody! My name is María Calderón and I am a peruvian doctor who is going to do a project on a lake island of Titicaca, Perú, called Amantani. As part of the project we are going to perform a questionnaire to get to know the population health needs and also we will perform health campaigns. When we talked to the authorities, we realised they have another problems that we think we can help with. For example one of the things they need are notebooks, pencils and colours for children to learn to read since they have a primary school on the island. This can help children from the island have a better education and stop sharing notebooks (yes, they have to do it). Also with more help, we can make all the island to have tooth brushes, tooth pastes, soap, water filters! (yes, all of it) We were thinking to buy office material for the school (color papers, markers, chalk, color pencils) and if it is possible (and we can dream about it) chairs and tables. We are setting a very high goal (just in case, who knows), but this is actually not that important. Any aid will be so welcome. Remember that a beer costs like 5 pounds in London and you can buy 5 notebooks, pencils, colours for a kid in Amantani with that (which is a semester material at school). I know that we can help this population together! PS: You will have updates and proof of everything we are doing!
