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

What impact would winning have on the charity?
Every month we are running out of money becuase the donations received are not enough to pay bills and food, depend the amount, the prize will help to pay the renting, buy food, pay utilities.
Also we are working in how to get funds to make our dream come true, to start the construction of the new shelter and provide provide more opportunities to the kids
