Peruvian Government's social programs implemented in regions —declared under state of emergency due to frosts and cold spells— will remain in place, Development and Social Inclusion Ministry (Midis) affirmed Wednesday.
This way, Midis responds to Peruvians' needs in a timely manner, as well as ensures the continuity of social programs such as Cuna Mas, Qali Warma
, Juntos, Foncodes, PIAS, Contigo, and Pension 65.
The Cooperation Fund for Social Development (Foncodes) program plans to deliver 1,414 housing units and 7,139 safe water kits to affected citizens.
In addition, Cuna Mas
distributed 17,500 warming kits in Ancash, Apurimac, Ayacucho, Cusco, Huancavelica, Huanuco, Junin, Madre de Dios, Pasco, Puno, and Ucayali regions.
Lastly, the Ministry highlighted the presence of 106 Tambos across the areas hit by extremely low temperatures.
Tambos denote a creative program intended to bring State-run social assistance services closer to citizens residing in remote rural areas.
