ORGANIZATIONS WE SUPPORT
We have been connected with organizations in Peru since 2009. One of the biggest issues we have been looking at here is domestic violence. Beyond the obvious problems of physical and emotional damage, it often throws women and children into poverty as they struggle to leave their abusive situations. Another major problem in Peru is the plight of children living in the streets, including those escaping abusive homes or who have families too poor to care for them. The organization Hogar de la Esperanza provides shelter for women and children escaping domestic abuse. Comunidad de Ninos Sagrada Familia is an orphanage and a school for impoverished children, providing them with love, structure, and educational opportunities.
