Etnikas Social Work projects

We volunteer weekly at the following two places:

HOGAR MADRE TERESA CALCUTTA: The Hogar Madre Teresa Calcutta is run by the missionaries de la Caridad, and serves a home for child residents who come from the poorest communities in and around Cusco. Many of whom are physically and mentally disadvantaged as well as orphaned. With this project, we aid in feeding, cleaning, doing laundry etc. The nuns have a heavy workload and our goal is to ease that. And off course to give the children some extra attention, to play with them and put a smile on their faces!
Every Tuesday and Friday in the afternoon from 3 till 5 pm.

SAN FRANCISCO DE ASIS GERONTOLOGY: San Francisco de Asis has 9 Sisters of the Abandoned Elderly and operational support staff workers paid by the Public Welfare Society of Cusco, which help with the direct care of the elderly and maintenance of the centre. The centre currently has approximately 180 elders. The centre is divided into 2 areas, one for men and one for woman. The majority of the residents live in the centre because their families live in extreme poverty or are no longer able to care for them. Some elders are in good health while others suffer from acute and chronic conditions. We help them with different tasks in caring for the elderly, but mostly in the direction of physiotherapy and message. The most important thin you can give is your personal attention, and that is our intention.
Every Friday in the morning from 9 till 11 am.

Once a month, on a Saturday we are volunteering with these 2 projects;

CASA HOGAR FERRO MARIA SALOME CUSCO: Is an orphanage that houses children and adolescent boys in a state of moral or material abandonment. It provides care to children that are at risk, who are suffering domestic violence and are neglected.
We take these children out and organize an activity for them with a cultural, social, environmental or sustainable awareness. Our intention is to give them a beautiful day out, with an educational twist and to put a smile on their faces.

REMAR: is a group home for children, who have been a part of or witnessed extreme violence, and have consequently been taken from their homes to a safe complex by the government. They live their lives in an enclosed complex.

Conclusion:

Etnikas Integrative Healing Clinic has become a destination for those wishing to make great strides in changing their lives. This is an insight into healing, spirituality accompanied with action, for volunteer services. We are involved in various community projects in the Cusco region and our aim is to continuously expand Etnikas’ social work efforts. To create a chain with spiritual, mental, physical, social, environmental and sustainable healing.
We believe that when and you are healing yourself, continual progression of self-renewal and transformation, you are helping to heal a community. We all are family and we need each other, which leads us to evolve ethics of social, sustainable and sensible behavior. To connect and to share that awareness is important to us. Thus this social work plan, whereby actions are taken that benefit the system as a whole.
