In 2017, our partners at IDESI in Piura, Peru were devastated by flooding that in some places rose as high as eight feet. IDESI repaid their remaining principal and interest in July, 2017, and requested additional funding, but due to their situation, we felt that a donation would be more appropriate. Last fall we put out a call to our investors and donors to help us raise $7,500. We reached our goal by the end of the year and sent the money as quickly as we could. We have been in touch with them on a regular basis and they are on the path to recovery.
We recently received this note from IDESI we wanted to pass along to you:
“It is our pleasure as representatives of IDESI, Grau Region, to express our sincere and profound thanks for the generosity you have shown our institution.
On the 4th of January of this year we received $7,500 in financial aid raised by your investors and donors. We send them our thanks for helping this good cause. This donation will be used to help us get on our feet and continue operating in the rural areas of our region.
Carlos Gastelu – Board President, Julio Alzamora – Manager”
