Delivery of School Kits in the Amazon Published: 07 May 2024

Thanks to an alliance with Peruvian NGO, the OLI Foundation, the Amazon Hope Medical Programme recently supported a campaign to deliver much-needed school kits. 

The OLI Foundation financed the kits and the shipping cost from Lima to Iquitos. The Amazon Hope Medical Programme transported the kits on the Forth Hope medical ship, delivering them to the children and young people in their schools. 200 kits were delivered to 6 schools in 5 communities on the Amazon and Manatí rivers.

The school kits were distributed following preventive health workshops, delivery of antiparasitics, multivitamins, fluoridation and eyesight measuring to students and teachers.

Kit contents: 1 backpack, 4 notebooks, 1 box of coloured pencils, 2 pencils, 1 pen, 1 eraser, 1 pencil sharpener and 1 ruler.

Gracias, OLI Foundation! Together, we're making a real difference in education and health.
