In COVID-19 times, the structural deficiencies of the high Andean population homes in Peru become more noticeable. In the community of Japura, Cusco region, many families are unprotected in the face of intense frost, causing colds, pneumonia and now the latent possibility of being infected by the Coronavirus.
Japura, is a small community, located in the mountains at 13,250 feet high. There, 50 families with very precarious houses and without basic services, have as their only family income the sale of their potato crops. They experience below zero temperatures every year, however, is the children who suffer the most from the intense cold, which becomes severe in the winter season.
With the help of friendly organizations and partners of our institution, most of the houses in Japura have basic electricity for a light bulb, generated by solar panel systems. With this service, the children do their homework at night, while the mothers continue their family project of weaving with alpaca fiber to contribute to the family budget. This economic income is low.
The children's bedrooms are not the most adequate, they use 4 blankets to cover themselves at night but it is not enough. The kitchen environment is small, dark and sooty because their fireplace does not have a chimney to expel the smoke.
Parents in this community know that in these times of COVID-19 they must improve their homes to protect their children from diseases, but they do not have the resources to do so.
Conditioning their homes from common to thermal using sustainable technology such as the trombe wall, is a solution, because it allows them to accumulate heat with solar energy, raising the temperature of the bedrooms by 50°F. In addition, the room is enhanced with wooden floor, a plaster-covered burlap fabric ceiling, and a reinforced door, thereby preventing heat leakage for 8 to 10 hours at night.
To improve the kitchen environment, we will implement a brick stove with a metal fireplace so that more heat will be generated in the environment, in addition to contributing to hygiene and health in food preparation. We need the environment to be warm so that the children do not get sick, and they are safe at home in these times of pandemic.
The cost of conditioning a home with this environmentally friendly insulation is US$1,585.
