People of Peru Project is providing aid to the region of Peru located at the headwaters of the Amazon River. Iquitos is a city of 700,000 people surrounded by thousands of square miles of jungle.
Poverty plagues this city. Disease, parasites, malnutrition, rampant tooth decay, sexual abuse, and premature death are but a few.
People of Peru Project is vigilant in the fight against human trafficking and exploitation of children. Many are left alone to survive on the streets or in the surrounding jungle with no parent or family unit to provide care.
We work with the local government, social workers and the family court to identify and care for the young girls and their babies who have no support system.
Thanks to our amazing volunteers and supporters back home we are able to provide medical and dental care to thousands, education for disadvantaged children, health education to communities and opportunities for spiritual growth, to those who are searching.
