The Government is setting up spaces at several homes in high-Andean areas across the country in order to increase their temperature by 10 C° and, thus, withstand extremely cold conditions.
These warm houses are fitted with wooden floors that keep moisture away.
The roof is sealed with a wire mesh plastered with a mixture of gypsum and glue.
The structure consists of a Trombe wall to absorb heat during sunlit hours of winter.
Installation works also include the set-up of double doors, as well as enhanced stoves that expel toxic fumes.
A total of 412 warm homes have been handed over in highland areas so far, thus benefiting 1,648 citizens.
