WHY STAIRCASES?

Our Staircase Construction Projects were inspired by the story of a MEDLIFE patient, Chais Pipa. Chais fell down the steep hillside that leads to her home, prompting a premature birth and health complications for her newborn child.

After speaking to Chais and other community members, we learned that several health problems were related to falls and the inability to navigate the steep terrain of Pamplona Alta.

As a result, MEDLIFE began building staircases in these regions and has continued to do so ever since.
