Project Spotlight: Skin Care

Our longest standing project seeks to treat and prevent the extensive damage that high altitude and sun exposure cause- especially to the sensitive skin of the face. For those children interested in participating, we provide sunscreen and education on skin health/safety. Contacts in the community follow up with the participants to track their progress and report their findings to us for future planning.

The estimated cost for this project is $300, which includes the cost of sunscreen. Please help us with this project by donating via Paypal on our website, percent of your donation will go to project expenses.

For more information on our skin project and the issue of skin damage in Peru, see this post, which we published early last year: High Altitude and Healthy Skin: A Public Health Concern.
