In March of 2017 MEDLIFE completed our largest water project yet in the community of Laderas de Nueva Esperanza, in Lima Peru. The three water tanks will serve about 500 residents from Laderas de Nueva Esperaza. The community is located high on the hillside and is dependent on water trucks. They are located so high, that the water trucks rarely drive to their community. Before the tanks, residents quickly ran out of water before the trucks returned. Now, with the tanks, residents will have enough water to last between visits, and be able to purchase the water at the much cheaper bulk rate to fill the water tanks. On Saturday April 1st, MEDLIFE staff, volunteers, and Laderas residents gathered to celebrate the completed project. Thank you to community leaders Victoria Ramos, Feliciano CuriÃ±aupa, Gavilan Quispe, Nora Lopez, and Santiago Quispe. Also, to Paola Zapata, Cesar Reyes, and Dr. Carlos for your work and for speaking at the inaugeration.
The community surprised us an amazing performance of traditional Peruvian dance!
