MISSION STATEMENT

Quechua Benefit is an organization dedicated to helping the Quechua people in the highlands of Peru. Quechua Benefit and its volunteers deliver medical, dental and optical care; distribute warm clothing; provide shelter, food, and sociological services with an emphasis on children.
