Finances

Financial Statements are available from CAFA. Please email to cafa@friendsofaniquem.org with any questions. We are able to allocate 100% of the funds provided by individual Canadian donors to our projects in Peru. Our funds are distributed to programs detailed on this website. We have two full time staff members in Lima - both social workers - who deliver our programs while working closely with ANIQUEM patients. Our ‘overhead’ in 2011 was about 5% and was focused on information for fund raising as well as basic office supplies and accountant costs.


All donations to CAFA come from individual donors in Canada. Thank you for making this possible. Our fiscal year is November 1 to October 31.
