worth investigating the various things that this nonn-profit organization is doing in this area. Casa Chapi is the school/orphanage that is funded by Q B. to help the children of the Quechua people in the high regions of this part of Peru.

A long flight but in Arequipa

Friday

Typical flight delays but safety and flexibility are what I aim for. Arrived and meet the team. Lots of very positive energy and singular focus.

We showed up at 9 00am and there were hundreds of people waiting. Mostly de-worming kids and giving vitamins to the little ones. Back tomorrow to see orphans from a local convent. if parents have a child with a complex mental or physical condition they " drop them off"at the convent.
