Dr. Davis Carrión

Medical Doctor
"I like working at Con Corazón due to the deficiency in the Peruvian health system. I see many children and the elderly in abandonment and there is much need. Patients in Marampaqui cannot go to a health center, that's why we go to patients. I am happy helping these people."

"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

"Over the years, the Rotary Club of Aarau has been able to generate various projects together with Con Corazón. One of the highlights was certainly the construction of the Medical Center at over 4,000 meters above sea level. The cooperation is always very sustainable, efficient and professional."

"What I remember most about my involvement was working with the people in the remote Andean region, where the organization provides valuable support. The unique insight into the culture and way of life of those people is definitely one of the most beautiful and memorable of my stay."

"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."

"I have been following Con Corazón for years, so a visit to Peru was logical and very precious for me. It was extremely impressive to enter into this unknown world and to capture it photographically. As a professional photographer, I still enjoy the impressive images from the Andean region."

"Wow, what an impressive landscape at over 4,000 m.a.s.l., what a beautiful place in the Andes, what unbelievable warm-hearted people! Immediately there was another wow, there is a lot to do for me in the next four months! Marampaqui became a second home for me".

"'The only thing that can eliminate poverty is to share with each other. ' Mother Teresa's quote points out how important Con Corazón's mission is to fight poverty in the long term and to give people a perspective. I am very grateful that I was able to visit the organization in Peru."
