We have been connected with organizations in Peru since 2009. One of the biggest issues in Peru 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. The other major problem in Peru is the plight of the street children, those escaping abusive homes or with 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 street children and impoverished children, providing them with love, structure, and educational opportunities.
