For her part, Patricia Miñarcaja, leader of the La Moya community, said she was very grateful to the doctors who came to pay attention to the population, “we are very happy and satisfied with the work of Mr. Prefect, it has not cost us a single penny It is a great help because we do not have money to pay for medicine or to go to the doctors ”, he mentioned. “Due to the pandemic we cannot go to the Health Sub-Center, we fear contagion and the trip costs, God pays you for being with us, the indigenous people, the presence of the doctors of the Provincial Board was a great relief,” said María León, resident of area.
