MINAP Response to COVID-19
Indigenous peoples from the Peruvian Amazon come to the city of Pucallpa seeking healthcare that is not available in their villages in the jungle. They are one of the most vulnerable people in this country, with no means to pay for medical care or basic necessities. In the city, they have no support network to seek out help. They usually stay in a Hostal For Tribal Patients while seeking medical help or receiving medical treatment. With COVID-19 the country of Peru is under lockdown and people were sent home. Indigenous patients have been negatively affected by these measures. Those receiving medical care found their treatments to be cancelled temporarily. With the healthcare units closed, they cannot access the medicines they need. MINAP has stepped in providing relief to these patients. They have distributed food staples, fish and toiletries. They also distribute health items (alcohol, soap etc). It is a privilege to support the work of MINAP during these trying times in the Peruvian Amazon, and their efforts are making a difference in their communities. Join Kutoa in supporting MINAP during the COVID-19 pandemic.
