Laderas Nueva Esperanza Playground

The playground in Laderas Nueva Esperanza.

When: March 3rd, 2014 to March 7th, 2014 (McGill’s Reading Week)

Where: Lima, Peru (community of Laderas Nueva Esperanza)

What: To build a fence around a playground that is positioned right on a cliff.

Why: A beautiful playground has been built (donated by a generous Canadian donor) however the parents of the children of Laderas Nueva Esperanza won’t allow kids to play on it because it is positioned on a cliff. The parents asked MEDLIFE’s Director of Peru if he could bring some volunteers to construct a fence around the playground.

How: MEDLIFE McGill’s chapter sponsored the project with a $2500 donation from its fundraising efforts in the 2013-14 year.

Result: 8 McGill students went down to Lima, Peru during Reading Week 2014 and built a structural wall around the playground. The children of the community are now able to enjoy the facilities to its full extent.
