Through Project Life, Umbrella Initiatives has partnered with a mutual help group founded by patients at the Hospital Nacional Arzobispo Loayza. We provide financial support for the Mutual Help group to provide refreshments and other materials for their monthly meetings. The group provides a space for reflection and help for individuals whom are either suffering from a chronic illness or whose family members are suffering from illness such HIV, AIDS, or cancer.
The largest activity on a yearly basis is the annual Christmas party and the goal for 2013 is to provide not only gifts for every child whose parent is HIV positive but also enough food to cover both the Christmas and New Year Holiday. However, this work is impossible with your help and donations. Below are photos from work over the fast few years through Project Life.
