Welcome to the PCF Website.
The Peruvian Children’s Fund is embarked on a mission to help save the lives of young children living high up in the lofty Andean mountains of central Peru!! Villagers living in these remote areas are desperately poor, and have no access to good medical care.
Thus, many of these children suffer needlessly from parasitic and worm infestations, from malaria, bacterial and viral illnesses of the lung, and from intestinal ailments causing dysentry, diarrhea and dehydration . . . and death.
Many of these illnesses are easily treatable, if a proper diagnosis can first be made. Unfortunately, none of the approximately 40 medical clinics in Ancash Province have the necessary medical equipment, or trained medical personnel, that can make the proper diagnoses . . .
Without accurate diagnosis, proper treatment is at best, haphazard.
The Peruvian Children’s Fund (PCF) is a humanitarian organization with a focus on children’s health in central Peru.
