Medical Campaign

Cooperativa Valle del Marañon had the initiative of assisting more than 350 of its coffee farmers members and their families with a medical campaign (Pediatric and ophthalmology service). The medical campaign was held from December 8th to December 10th in 2016, and it was very successful.

It is necessary to mention that almost 100% of coffee farmers do not have any kind of private health insurance in Peru. Some of them have public health insurance (Seguro Integral de Salud-SIS), but the service is terribly inefficient. Therefore, this kind of campaigns is highly valuable to them.
