Lima, Peru – December 16, 2021. This past November, teams from the Ausenco Foundation and AngloAmerican’s Ambassadors for Good program finalized the construction of a sewage connection for the “Hogar de Belén” orphanage in Moquegua, Peru. The new connection replaces the need for a sewage tank, providing a direct and safe line to the city’s sanitary system.

This new system improves the quality of the lives of the residents at Hogar de Belén, most of whom are children, adolescents and people with disabilities. By replacing the septic system, fear of groundwater and environmental contamination has been removed. This is critical as the orphanage depends on its ability to farm for self-reliance and sustainability.

During the construction phase in September, Ausenco worked with the Hogar de Belén staff to ensure safety protocols and measures were in place to create a safe environment.

Julisa Rocha, Leader of the Ausenco Foundation, commented on the program:

“Working together with AngloAmerican’s Ambassadors for Good team has been incredibly rewarding. Together, we have found a better way to create a positive and sustainable outcome for this sensitive community. Both groups emphasized the importance of safety from the outset, and we were proud that our HSE experts volunteered to provide training to the orphanage’s contractor company. It was great teamwork."

The Ausenco Foundation is committed to working in the future with different stakeholders to develop collaborative projects for communities in Peru.
