Since 2009, the Trafigura Foundation has been working in close cooperation with FIC, which was established in Peru jointly by Trafigura's Peruvian entities.
Fundación Integración Comunitaria (FIC) works to improve quality of life within impoverished communities, towns and settlements in the Andes, Peru. Trafigura offices and operational sites – notably our mining activities are located near these remote areas, so it was natural that we decided to channel our support into the region’s development. We chose our trusted local operating partner, FIC to implement 4 separate projects:
- a mobile health campaign that offers consultations in primary healthcare, and nutritional health;
- ‘My productive fields’ which supports local communities with farming, husbandry and irrigation techniques & methods;
- an healthy housing project aimed at improving home habits by installing improved cooking stoves, refrigerators and vegetables patches;
- a primary school in Pampa Galeras, which has built dormitories for school children, maintains the local school, provides children with meals and nutritional monitoring and drinking water.
