Mesa Sister City:

Caraz, Peru



Caraz, located in the Ancash region of Peru, became Mesa’s third Sister City in 1989. The Cordillera Blanca, the highest range of mountains in the tropical world, surround the village of Caraz, home to 7,000 people.

Mesa resident, Dr. Raul Osorio, a native of Caraz, was instrumental in establishing and continuing Mesas relationship with this Sister City. As a result of our association, Dr. Osorio and his team of medical volunteers have undertaken several medical missions to take doctors, nurses and paramedics to tread medically need people in the Caraz area.
