Warm and Healthy Homes in Peru

ADRA is partnering with a Quechua people group living in the highlands of Peru to build warm and healthy homes. Tiny one-room dwellings made of mud bricks, dirt floors, and no insulation from the cold winter winds are replaced with insulated houses. These homes also have wood floors and solar heating. New cooking stoves with chimneys to send the smoke outside provide healthier environments, especially for the elderly and young children.
