Fundacion Paz-holandesa Charity Profile
Founded 19th august 1999. The foundation is initiated by Mrs. Marjan van Mourik and Dr. Daniel Paz y Geuze. In december 1998, Marjan van Mourik was on holiday in Peru and happened to get in touch with the ’street children’s’-project of in Cusco.
In June this year she returned to further learn about the needs and possibilities for starting a project on her own. It appeared that the Lions lub in Cusco just had kicked of a programme aimed at the lowest social classes of the people in and around Cusco. For this programme they were looking for medical teams that could possibly help out.
When back in Rotterdam, Marjan discussed the possibilities to support the efforts of the Lions Club in Cusco and encountered an unexpected and spontaneous enthousiasm. The Academic Hospital in Rotterdam was more than willing to help with expert knowledge as well as by sending medical teams to fix the job in Cusco.
Dr. Daniel Paz y Geuze is helping his country Peru already for a long time by executing operations on children from time to time. He also collects and ships medical tools and goods to help Peruvian hospitals. However, he was more and more looking for some kind of continuity and a more sructural and durable way of cooperating with local Peruvian hospitals in his home town Arequipa as well as in other locations in Peru. Marjan van Mourik and Dr. Paz understood eachother and all things fell in place: the foundation Fundacion PAZ-Holandesa became a reality.
The foundation Fundacion PAZ-Holandesa is officially registered in The Netherlands as well as in Peru. Also an official request is submitted to the ‘Central Agency for Funding’ for getting a so-called ‘declaration of no objections’.
Fundacion Paz-holandesa Donation Information
Our Christmas appeal is our first on the web fund raiser for 2008. Funds come to us from bequests, donations and we also contribute ourselves through events and grants. The need for our free services to the children of Peru is growing daily, it is also vital that we are able to get the Tony Molleapaza Rojas Children Hospital really finished. With greater amounts of funding and the hospital in function we can help much more children.
