What does a Children's Health Citadel mean or what is it about?

It is a micro city of love and hope, of great scenic beauty, which has generated spaces of high architecture and happiness to integrate all its visitors or social actors, such as: children and their families; doctors and various professionals - national and foreign; volunteers; philanthropic tourism, authorities and all those who wish to share the experience of touring and joining forces in the history of VIDAWASI. In our 13 hectares we have planned several areas for specialized pediatric health care, primary care, early diagnosis and various high standard services; as well as areas for integration and support to families, visitors, volunteers and allies who visit us and join us every day to help give life to the first children's health citadel in Latin America. It is a unique cause that provides for all the needs demanded by pediatric health care and the fight against childhood cancer for those who today have no opportunity, that is, we provide comprehensive support and not only high-quality medical services.

Why build a hospital Citadel and not just a hospital?

In Peru, specialized services are very scarce outside Lima, families who come to the capital in search of help saturate the services and face economic, social and cultural adversity that mostly forces them to abandon the treatment of their children. That is why in our Children’s Health Citadel we not only provide specialized medical care, we care for families in extreme poverty so they can also have well-prepared spaces to be happy receiving the attention and love of their country and the world.
