Intiwawa is a young relief organization that is based both in Berlin/Germany, and Arequipa/Peru.
The name Intiwawa is Quechua and means “Children of the Sun”.
The main goal of our organization is to fight poverty in the slums of Arequipa, the second biggest city in Peru. We’re currently mainly working in San Isidro, a small place 45 minutes away from Arequipa.
The inhabitants of the village suffer from malnourishment, a lack of education, alcoholism, domestic violence, and a lack of hygienic sanitary facilities. This and the unsanitary water conditions lead to hygiene related diseases. Additionally, there is a lack of financial resources to install water pipes or establish a provision of medical care.
The goal of Intiwawa is to be both a preventative measure against the causes of the problems within the community as well as actively fighting against the current problems. In order to make our goal reality we require as much support as possible, from volunteers, donors, and sponsors.
Thank you very much for your valuable support!
