Help us continue to provide vital assistance to vulnerable communities in Peru.
The global COVID-19 crisis has caused a lot of uncertainty for us. In addition to worrying about the wellbeing of communities and staff, the economic crisis and the uncertainty of funding are major concerns. The Chijnaya Foundation mission has always been fueled by the generosity of individual donors and we are aware of the effects the economic recession can have on this funding.
A recent article on Peru by the New York Times stated "Fear of the virus and job loss in cities are pushing many back to the countryside, reversing a decades-long trend of urban migration and raising alarm about a public health crisis in rural areas."

We need your support now more than ever so that the vital work in Peru can continue. Your donation will make it possible to provide communities with the support they need to navigate the new challenges presented by the crisis as well as provide support for existing programs.
