Intrepid Travel feeds hundreds of families in Peru

Friday, 04 Feb, 2021 0

 

Intrepid Travel has raised over £11,000 to provide meals to help feed more than 1,700 people in Peru’s Sacred Valley.

The meals were delivered to more than 350 families by non-profit The Intrepid Foundation in partnership with the NGO MEDLIFE.

Many of these families are cooks and porters whose income has been hit by the lack of tourism due to the ongoing pandemic.

The Intrepid Foundation worked locally with MEDLIFE, which helps low-income communities in Latin America get medicine, education and food aid.

“The entire tourism industry has been severely impacted by this pandemic but as a sustainable tour operator, we are committed to giving back and supporting local communities even through the most challenging times,” said Gary Cohen, Intrepid’s General Manager for Latin America.

“Our work with MEDLIFE has allowed us to provide critical support to families whose livelihood depends on international tourism.”
