Trujillo, Peru (PRWEB) November 30, 2009 -- As part of APR Energy's (APR) continuing goal to give back to the communities that it inhabits, APR recently donated much needed medicines and medical supplies to the Municipality of La Esperanza, in the Trujillo province of northwestern Peru.
The donation was part of the Free General Health Campaign co-sponsored by APR, the Municipality of La Esperanza, Caja Municipal and Huggies. The event provided generic medicines and routine medical treatments to impoverished children and families as well as physically handicapped individuals in the area. Twenty- five types of medicines ranging from over- the- counter pain relievers to antibiotics and the syringes to administer them were donated by APR, with workers from the Municipality of La Esperanza performing health check-ups and routine medical treatments during the event.
"APR recognizes that a reliable supply of electricity is not all that the people of Trujillo need," said Eric Sean Kennedy, Senior Vice President of APR. "As a member of the community we are dedicated to helping however we can to improve the quality of life of those in need."
More than 200 families were able to benefit from the Free General Health Campaign.
"This massive health campaign was aimed at tackling seasonal diseases in areas where access to medical attention is almost impossible for those living on less than $3 per day", said Mery Muñoz, Trujillo Power Project Administrative Assistant and Translator.
The Free General Health Campaign is part of a larger campaign by APR to further benefit the communities where APR builds, owns and operates plants all around the world.
