The volunteers of New Acropolis Peru brought aid to those who live in the Santa Rosa District – Masocruz, in Puno which is located 4,050 meters above sea level. Every year, New Acropolis carries out this campaign “Let’s Save Them from the Cold” to help the people who live in the poorest areas of Peru and are affected by the freezing temperatures of the harsh winter.
The team of volunteers from the Puno Center gave out blankets and cold weather clothing to 800 families in this area which had a harder winter than those before. This has caused serious lung diseases, the destruction of more than 100 homes and the death of thousands of animals in the area.
