Will provide a steady stream of produce for the hospital’s kitchen
Every year the hospital spends 0.2mio Soles to buy food. A substantial amount. Might it be possible to reduce it somewhat? On Thursday Diospi Suyana bought a lovely plot of land in Curahuasi, surrounded by fields, but only a mere 10 minute walk away from the hospital itself. Here we plan to plant and harvest potatoes, beans, tomatoes, onions, sweetcorn, strawberries, etc. Thus we are providing a new job and expect to drastically reduce our canteen’s expenses.
Buying such a large plot of land is an investment for the coming years and ideas abound with what one could/should do with it! Dr Benjamin Zeier and Louis Fischer (see above) are absolutely delighted with the new plot of land and its potential.
The seven previous owners – a community of heirs – arrived two days previously from several Peruvian cities in order to put their signatures on the final purchase documents. Over the past three years Diospi Suyana had inspected several properties; this one fits perfectly. We thank God for this wonderful opportunity. /KDJ
