During the inauguration of the "Virgen de Vidawasi" pediatric health and childhood cancer citadel in Cusco region, the Head of State indicated that these types of acts in favor of children "give meaning to our lives."

"To think about children is to protect families, it means fulfilling the Government's commitments; that is why we are here. Given that the public sector is joined by the private one, we are convinced that it is possible to make peoples' dreams come true," he expressed.

"In order to build a more just, sovereign, and supportive nation every day, I will not take a step backwards as I came because of you to dignify the country, to command this homeland," he emphasized.

Mr. Castillo indicated that during the tour of these health citadel facilities he could see a lot of vegetation, which "is the sense of life."

Therefore, he said it was important to allocate a real budget to these types of spaces and urged founders of this project to decentralize it, as well as "to bring it to the jungle and the center of the country."

Moreover, the President stressed that the pediatric health and childhood cancer citadel is a non-profit initiative, as well as urged that regional and local government budgets to support such projects and reach out to children.
