"When I heard that many people received free health care from an NGO, I was very interested in finding out more. Now, not only do I know who they are, but I am also part of the Con Corazón team! I really like working alongside my colleagues wanting to serve the less privileged."

"Health is a right that every human being has, sadly only those who can pay for this service have access to quality health. Con Corazón is a family that is dedicated to provide quality health services and makes access possible to all human groups. The satisfaction of bringing them health and making them feel that we are close to them is indescribable."

"I have two daughters, Ana and Marta. I live near our health center. I am in charge of pharmacy, cleaning, triage, nurse assisting and translating. Through the training and experience gained over the years, I learned the basics of how to care for a sick patient in my village. It makes me very happy to help my own people."

Testimonials

"I had the opportunity to volunteer at Con Corazón. I worked alongside Dr. Saulo and his team. The clinics provided services performed by qualified staff and volunteers. Although I had no dental background, I was able to assist the dentists with tooth extractions, cleanings, and fillings."

“Saulo and his colleagues were incredibly friendly and generous with their time. We’ve formed friendships that will outlast our stay. Staying in Cusco for a month also gave us the opportunity to really get under the skin of the city, and understand better the Peruvian way of life and traditions.”

"The Andes are my birthplace and I feel deeply connected to this region. To have the opportunity to support the people there in a direct way and without detours is something great. Knowing that donations are going to the right place, to the right people, is what I thank and trust Con Corazón for."

"Con Corazón uses a great sustainable model providing subsidized quality dental care to lower income populations. The highlight was being able to work in Marampaqui. These patients have minimal access to dental care, and it was amazing to be able to provide care in such a remote location."

“We felt we wanted to give back! As part of our six-month sabbatical we thought Cusco is the perfect place to pause and give some time helping through Con Corazón. We have been mainly assisting the work of the dental clinic. It’s clear this NGO is having a big positive impact within the region.”

"I support Con Corazón because Danièle's involvement has convinced me, from the beginning, that the help arrives directly, without any detours. What is also fascinating to me is the constant further development and the focus on the long-term perspective. The highlight was the visit in 2019."
