Classic Alpaca Peru has been working with smaller producers in the city of Huancayo for over 6 years. We gradually learned their basic health needs were not always being met. There is a system called “SIS” where medical expenses from medicines to care are free, but Classic Alpaca has noticed that many of its workers and relatives do not use the SIS system for different reasons.
With this premise Classic Alpaca has managed to help socially, not only for its more than 120 workers; but for the community in which it operates. With the support of the Quechua Benefit we developed a massive and free campaign on June 22, 23, and 24 at “Local de usos multiples de Justicia, Paz y Vida”. ONG was able to bring doctors from Arequipa with the specialties of Dentistry, Pediatrics and General Medicine. Also, Classic Alpaca bought medicines for common diseases that people of the city of Huancayo experience.
Along with the medical campaign we held a parallel oral health campaign in “Institutions 30129 Micaela Bastidas and 31593 Javier Heraud”, where Doctors dewormed more than 380 children. The children were also taught the proper way to brush their teeth, and Classic Alpaca donated toothbrushes.
The goal of Classic Alpaca was to help 500 people in three days with the medical and oral health campaigns; and this exceeded their expectations. 429 children and 213 adults were served, making a total of 642 beneficiaries.
