What Our Partners Are Saying
John T. StephensSenior Director, Programs & Partnerships, Vibrant Village Foundation
“Vibrant Village has been a proud partner of DESEA Peru for many years. In the remote mountains of Peru, community members have long suffered from a lack of access to basic healthcare and clean water. DESEA’s innovative approaches to providing cost-effective, high-impact solutions to the people in these communities is bringing lifesaving, transformational change to those that need it most. Their programs not only serve families but empower local women to carry out this work, ensuring the long-term viability of program results.”
Bruce ParkerChairman, Christadelphian Meal a Day Fund of the Americas
“The Christadelphian Meal a Day Fund of the Americas has been a financial supporter of DESEA Peru for over 5 years. From direct observation and from third-party reports, we have seen that DESEA is an unusually well-organized charitable foundation, providing direct health-related services and training of local women as health providers. DESEA is directly responsible for saving lives, improving child and mother health, and providing health services and potable water to thousands of the poorest of the poor in Peru.”
Howard B. SchifferPresident, Vitamin Angels
“DESEA has woven themselves into the fabric of the communities they are serving to build a truly sustainable and scalable model. The heart of DESEA is vast and the difference they are making in these women's and children's lives is inspiring. It would be hard to find a more efficient and effective organization.”
Ryan O. CollinsCo-Founder, Wake Media
“I was fortunate enough to visit DESEA Peru's home office in Lamay and accompany the team to a number of the communities where they work. Arriving at their office, I was immediately struck by how passionate the entire DESEA team is about the work they do. They're on a mission not only to help isolated communities in the Peruvian high Andes but also to put a system in place by which the residents of these communities will eventually have the necessary skills to carry on DESEA's work on their own. Seeing the faces of the women and children whose lives they impact is truly moving and uplifting.”
Trevor McGuirkProject Manager, Rotary Unley, Australia Club
“DESEA is a very professional NGO. Working with the directors and their project manager has been a pleasure and very rewarding. DESEA are implementing all aspects of the project diligently and professionally. They pay particular attention to all aspects of the project especially the training of indigenous women in primary health care. I endorse the work DESEA is doing and have no hesitation in recommending their work to other organizations.”
Dr. Kathleen RossProject Leader, Rotary Club of Coquitlam
“The Rotary Club of Coquitlam, Rotary Club of Chilliwack and other Rotary Clubs of District 5050, began our association with DESEA Peru in 2016 providing a Vocational Training Team through a Rotary International Grant. It is clear that DESEA Peru has a strong relationship with the local village people, leaders, the governmental and non-governmental agencies, and this is a testament to their commitment, dedication, and desire to make life better for the people of these remote villages. In short, they have the right approach to helping the less fortunate improve their lives, not simply by providing clean water and basic medical supplies, but through their sustainable programs.”
Eric MillerChief Executive Officer, Capitol City Medical Teams
“Capitol City Medical Teams has had a partnership with DESEA Peru for almost a decade. We have similar missions in that we want to improve people's living conditions. Their work with the installation of biosand water filters and educating and empowering indigenous women has been impressive. We are delighted that our partnership will continue for decades to come.”
