Volunteering in Cusco Peru

Pablo Neruda stated that “volunteering has the property of bringing people together in fraternal and cooperative work “. This fraternal and cooperative work, the Chilean poet refers to, we saw through a group of 9 young students (3 boys and 6 girls) that arrived in Cusco on January 3 and supported several volunteer projects of AMAUTA Spanish School in the city of Cusco.

The first organization that got support from these young people was a clinic that provides medical and rehabilitation services, which is under the direction of a religious order. In this clinic the volunteers helped with different activities such as feeding children, assist them in personal hygiene, to help them with their activities of painting and drawing, take a walk, and finally engage in recreational leisure activities.

The Konex Cultural center is an old cooking oil factory and on Monday there will be around 1500 people inside bringing an amazing atmosphere.
