SOCIAL PROJECTS

Supporting Local Communities

OUR SOCIAL MISSION

At Killa Expeditions we are passionate about giving back to local communities, providing for the communities who let us use their land for trekking and camping, and supporting locally owned/run businesses. Each year we hold numerous charity events for a variety of local communities. People living in the mountains do not have access to medical or dental care and often don’t have basic necessities, shoes or proper clothing. If you would like to help us give back – be it time, money, supplies, clothing, shoes, medicine, and/or professional expertise (e.g. medical advice, dentistry, nursing, chiropractic adjustments, etc.) please get in touch to find out how you can help! 

CHILLCA COMMUNITY CHARITY EVENT – RAINBOW MOUNTAINS

The Chillca Community in the Rainbow Mountains is one of the local villages that Killa Expeditions helps support. This is one of the newer communities that we have started working with. Over 50 children and their families attended this event from all over the Rainbow Mountains. We brought hot chocolate and pastries, gifts and school supplies for the children, and toiletries, medicine, food staples and produce for families. As always at future events we hope to be able to provide various professional services via volunteers such as a doctor/nurse clinic, chiropractic adjustments, dental checks, vision and hearing checks, and more. The families who live in this region of Cusco receive limited support due to the distance from Cusco City. We look forward to holding more charity events in the area as well as working with them on future social projects with their input regarding needs.

WILLOC COMMUNITY CHARITY EVENT

Willoc is the newest local community that Killa Expeditions helps support. One of our incredible trek chef’s is from Willoc and brought his community to our attention. This was our Christmas 2016 event where we brought hot chocolate and pastries, gifts and school supplies for the children, and toiletries, medicine, food staples and produce for families. We also held a community meeting with the villages to discuss future needs. Willoc is in desperate need of a new school building with classrooms, offices, common areas, kitchen/cafeteria, and all the supplies that go with a school. At future events we hope to be able to provide the funding and labor to help build a school as well as various professional services via volunteers such as a doctor/nurse clinic, chiropractic adjustments, dental checks, vision and hearing checks, and more!

LARES COMMUNITY CHARITY EVENT

Lares is one of the local communities that Killa Expeditions helps support. Each year we hold at least one charity event in their main square. Locals turn up from all over the Lares Valley, some walking several hours to participate. To this event we brought hot chocolate and pastries, gifts and school supplies for the children, and toiletries, medicine, food staples and produce for families. At future events we hope to be able to provide various professional services via volunteers such as a doctor/nurse clinic, chiropractic adjustments, dental checks, vision and hearing checks, and more!
