Clinica Internacional is a network of international medical professionals committed to improving the health of Peruvian citizens, with a special focus on early childhood. In July 2017, 8 units of the Better Shelter Relief Housing Unit (RHU) were implemented in Cura Mori across 6 camps, which collectively host approximately 8,000 residents. The shelters served as dining halls for 200 children.

“The Better Shelter tent allows us to help our national daycare program, Cuna Mas, continue with its programs of services in the best conditions by safeguarding the integrity of the children between 0-3 who have been affected by the Niño Costero phenomenon”.
