Millions of individuals around the globe lack access to basic needs like: water, sanitation, hygiene, housing, and primary care. Hands on Peru, a Cary based nonprofit, has been working in Trujillo and Huanchaco, Peru, since 2013, has noted devastating weaknesses in the Peruvian health & public health systems. Together with a team of international donors and local professionals, we built CESAPU – Centro de Salud Pública – as a solution to prevent even more of Peru’s poor to bear the physical, financial, and emotional burdens of preventable disease. 

In a post-pandemic world, our work in public health has proven to be more essential than ever. Not only do we offer primary care services like: medical consults, checkups, dental, ultrasound, nutrition, & physical therapy, we also host participatory programs in the afternoon like cooking class, knitting class, zumba class, tutoring, and surf class, so that individuals feel more engaged & empowered in their health. One of our most successful programs has been CHIMUK, #knittingabetterfuture, a brand of handknit alpaca products that employs over 20 women in a dignified & fulfilling way.

A short 7 minute documentary of our clinic’s impact can be found here:

Currently, our clinic serves an average of 250 patients per month between our primary care and dental services, and also engage an average of 50 women and over 50 children, in our weekly afternoon activities.

In order to help more cherished souls with essential health services & addressing basic needs, the clinic will continue to expand our services, deepen our impact, and grow our clinic. With a new focus on sustainability & innovation, Hands on Peru have designed & budgeted a second floor for our public health clinic to have more space to be able to impact more lives.
