The primary income for Chama Baja village comes from selling milk and Alpaca fur.
Unfortunately, over the past several years climate change has made it difficult for families to consistently feed their livestock. No rain, no grass for the cows, the llamas or the Alpacas to graze upon.
CRS worked with the community on a "Health with Water and Sanitation" project. In order to take care of the environment the CRS project sought to improve the conditions and quality of life of the target population through the construction, improvement, expansion and renewal of drinking water systems, construction of ecological toilets and construction of ecological garbage pits.
