How the employee got involved and why
My frriend found Albergue Inspira 10 years ago and i started workiing with him almost 2 years ago.
Why? becuase a hight number of kids detected with cancer come from farway village with little or not money to Lima to get medical treatment. Inspira provide a place to stay and healthy food to the kid and 1 family member during the time that the treatment takes (there is not a limit time to stay). Our vision is to decrease the mortality of kids with cancer, the goverment provide the treatment but if they dont have a place to stay in Lima the kids abandond the treatment. we want to provide to our kids the opportunity to survive and walk with them during this difficult journey .
Cancer treatment is only available in Lima, and Lukimia the most common cancer for kids, the treatment takes minimun 6 months
