Medicine Hut Project

This exciting project is underway to build medicine huts in jungle villages in order to have supplies of medicines where there are no pharmacies. The sponsor of this project is Altro, a company in England that will test their cladding products in the jungle environment by the construction of medicine and storage huts in select villages. Leaders in each village are mobilizing local people to carry out construction in the local MINGA fashion of building. Renzo Peña is overseeing the construction with architect Maga Guanilo of Lima, in association with STEMA. Started in March 2019, there will be monthly construction trips planned July through September.  If any volunteers are interested in assisting, please contact info@dbperu.org.
