Minutes before 11 at night, the Telethon received a contribution of 200 thousand soles. The money will be used to fund health and rehabilitation scholarships for children at the San Juan de Dios clinic.
It seems like there is a new record that needs to be established. Telethon 2017, which benefits children and young people with physical disabilities attending the clinic San Juan de Dios, has managed to surpass the goal that was set for this year.
Minutes before 11 pm, a donation of 200 thousand soles was received, which reached S / 11’717.981 and closed the solidarity day of this year. The money will go to fund health and rehabilitation scholarships for children at the clinic San Juan de Dios, and continue with the construction of a new center in Piura.
In a broadcast that lasted almost 24 hours, several television figures urged the Peruvians to support this noble cause. Gisela Valcárcel, Andrea Llosa, Maritere Braschi, Cristian Rivero, Maricarmen Marín, Aldo Miyashiro and several other entertainment personalities conducted the 2017 Telethon interlaced.
The San Juan de Dios Clinic Home has clinics and rehabilitation centers throughout the country. The money collected will be derived from a fiduciary that has guaranteed the transparency of its use. The Teletón 2017 also had artistic numbers starring Peruvian artists such as Marco Romero, Ezio Oliva and international guests like Chyno Miranda, a former member of the duo Chino and Nacho.
The 2017 Telethon had various donation modalities. Citizens could contribute to the Clínica San Juan de Dios through interbank transfers, text messages, telephone calls and via boxes at various registered establishments.
