Huarochiri (Lima region), Jul. 6. Government investments worth S/2.50 billion (about US$757.57 million), in water projects, will ensure full access for Lima and Callao residents, President Ollanta Humala Tasso announced on Wednesday.
“Peru is not an average poor country anymore. However, six million people live in poverty. They don’t eat ‘average figures.’ Thus, we work for those people,” he stressed.
