Our team had the pleasure of serving the gracious people of Pitumarca. It is small, warm town about a three-hour drive outside of Cusco. Pitumarca has a fully indigenous population that traces back to pre-Inca civilization. “Pitu” is the native name for a flute instrument and Marca is the region. 95% of this community speaks Quechua.
This was the first time in the town’s long history that any medical teams arrived to provide needed care. IMR prides itself in bringing compassionate care to communities with little to no access to medical care.
The elders in the community greeted our team with native songs and flowers, and many of the patients who came to our clinic shed tears of gratitude upon registration. The team had a week of uplifting experiences.
