“Aprendo Contigo” (Learn with Me) is an educational/recreational program which takes school work to children who are in the hospital and / or receiving outpatient treatment, with the goal of helping them maintain their relationship with school and at the same time facilitating their continuous educational growth. The National Cancer Institute lends its hand assisting with classrooms, as well as “La Posadita del Buen Pastor”, a center for abandoned children that are HIV positive, and “El Hogar Clinica San Juan de Dios” providing aid to children with orthopedic and neurological problems. In February 2010 its fourth location was inaugurated in the Children’s Health Institute, formerly known as the Children’s Hospital, giving treatment to our future generation in the areas of Pulmonology and Hematology and Medicine D. Since its foundation the program has served 6 thousand hospitalized children and 25 thousand outpatients children.
Each year a group of 20 children in the “Learn with Me” program experiences a treasured holiday at Las Dunas Hotel. The children are able to enjoy the sun, which shines all year round, all of our facilities, especially the swimming pool and all the sport courts, amongst our activities such as dune buggying, sand boarding, outdoor big chess, and art workshops organized by the hotel.
We count on the support of Condor Travel Agency in making this experience possible, assisting with roundtrip transportation Lima - Ica for the children, volunteers and nurses from the program.
