Enhancing wellbeing in the communities of the high Andes.

Our purpose at DESEA Peru is to improve lives in Andean communities through diverse programs and outreach campaigns.

What We Do

DESEA Peru provides comprehensive community health solutions to remote communities throughout the Sacred Valley, Cusco, Peru. Our work is divided into the four distinct programs outlined below. Since instilling this integrated approach to our work, we’ve seen significant reductions in mortality and morbidity rates throughout the project areas, particularly for mothers and young children.

Water Treatment

Our water treatment program is centered around fighting biological contaminants present in drinking water sources in the Andes.

Health Services

By delivering health services we’re developing a solution to address the higher than average mortality rates in rural Andean communities.

Health Education

Our education program offers health-related courses to the school-age children and adults in the communities we serve.

Community Development

In our development program, we assist in project organization, investment concepts, government applications, and liaison services.

Our Impact So Far

Since 2008, DESEA Peru has been dedicated to working to improve the lives of those living in high altitude communities in the Peruvian Andes. Each year, we’ve been able to expand our reach and increase community support through our programs.

With your help, we’re able to support 578 families in 11 communities throughout Peru.
