During a surge of Covid-19 cases in Arequipa in July-August 2020, Help Peru joined the efforts of the Arequipa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIA). The special campaign supported people infected with the coronavirus, helped reduce infections and protected health personnel. Help Peru contributed by providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to health centers and food baskets for 2 weeks to families in quarantine. It is estimated that Help Peru’s aid reached some 6,000 people.
The CCIA is a non-profit organization that seeks to strengthen the entrepreneurial activity in Arequipa and the South of Peru.
