About Peru

Peru’s mixture of culture and tradition has delivered a range of art, cuisine, literature and music. The multi ethnic culture had one of the world’s fastest-growing economies in 2012 but has since slowed between 2014 and 2018. A quarter of the population is still living in extreme poverty. While advances in their water and sanitation systems have greatly improved, their lack of quality still poses a health risk.
