Porter Food Distribution
Emergency food parcels for porters and their families
With Peru still feeling the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, the country’s decrease in tourism and temporary closure of businesses has made it increasingly difficult for many families to put food on their tables.
Playing our part of harnessing the power of travel to improve life in hard-to-reach places during this unprecedented time, our local operator in Peru has partnered with NGO, Medlife, who are currently focused on providing emergency relief for vulnerable communities impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
Funded by the Community Kickstart Project, our operator is working with Medlife to deliver emergency food parcels to the households of porters and other staff members who have continuously worked hard to guide our clients along the iconic Inca Trail.
“Inca Trail porters work incredibly hard year round to enable travellers to fulfil their dreams of reaching Machu Picchu. So in this time when tourism has come to a grinding halt and severe lockdown has limited other income opportunities, we are grateful to our local operator for identifying a way we can show porters and their families our support.”– Crista Cullen, Exodus Travels Foundation Trustee
