Hi guys and gals!
As most of you know, i am currently living in Yantalo, in the north of Peru in the jungle area where when i leave i will have been working for almost a year in my area of public health and nutrition.
The Yantalo Foundation is a charity set up in 2005 to provide and support our village, which focuses in the areas of health and education. We are also building a 16-bed International Clinic - the first green clinic in Peru! The Foundation plans to equip the clinic with telemedicine, solar power and intelligent water use in order to decrease any harmful impact to the region and lower operating costs. The Clinic will serve all the people of the region—regardless of their ability to pay—while also serving as a training center for Peruvian medical students and physicians. International physicians, dentists and other health care professionals will examine and treat patients, who otherwise have no access to proper medical attention.

To support the foundation and raise money for these causes, May 19th i will be running the Movistar Lima half marathon (in Lima, believe it or not) and so for you to support me in this by donating whatever money you can would be fantastic - every single pound (or dollar or nuevo sol) counts, and is so greatly appreciated and goes so, so far here - every pound is almost 4 nuevo sol.
So whatever help you can give, i can tell you personally i have seen how far that money goes and it absolutely changes lives.

Thank you so much and wish me luck!
