Peru

The Hogar de Mercedes de Jesus Molina Orphanage is located in the Sacred Valley of Peru. The Hogar houses about 11 orphan girls and focuses on their education and health, which together provide the tools necessary for the girls to continue on to higher education. The Hogar also runs a large lunch programmeme for disadvantaged children in the local community. Each day, nearly ninety children are fed a hot lunch at the Hogar – this often is their only hot meal of the day. Since our partnership began, we have supported the lunch programmeme and funded the building of a new dining room and shower facility at the orphanage.
