RAISING THE STANDARDS FOR THE HIGHLANDS COMMUNITY
The word “Denan” is not only the name of a remote Ethiopian town: it also means “bitter” in the Somali language. But now, The Denan Project has medically treated more than 100,000 residents–all for free. With our medical care and other efforts, we have brought a little sweetness to an embittered place. Building on the success we achieved in Denan, we are making progress in replicating our efforts in other parts of the world, first in Burkina Faso… and now into the Andean highlands of Peru. The Denan Project has extended its medical humanitarian efforts to Peru by opening a new health center on October 20, 2010 in the high, remote, Andean village of Uratari. It is the first time that free, quality medical care is provided to the indigenous communities of the area.
