Thanks for taking the
time to visit my page in support of the Children of
Peru Foundation - a small, highly focused charity
doing some very important work in Peru.
What kind of work?
Children of Peru Foundation helps children
by supporting projects run by local organizations in
healthcare & education. This includes the poor,
malnourished or abused children needing immediate
medical attention, children with developmental
disabilities (Down syndrome, autism, cerebral
palsy), as well as surgical procedures (cleft
lips & palates, cleft lip rhinoplasties, pharyngeal
flaps, and similar deformities such as microtias).
In Huaycan, an impoverished area of Peru, the
Children of Peru Foundation gives aid to these
people through funding the Samusocial Peru
organization. Support is given by way of a mobile unit
composed of a social worker, a nurse and a driver. They
travel through this neighborhood to care for and listen
to people in social and medical emergency situations. Samusocial Peru gives aid to this impoverished
community in three ways: medical assistance,
psychological support and preventive education.
Another core focus of the Children of Peru Foundation
is to help kids with disabilities.
The Children of Peru Foundation does this by
supporting Manos Unidas, a Peruvian Non-Profit
Organization founded in 2008 in Cusco, Peru. Children in
Peru that have disabilities are often abandoned, abused,
or locked away. Manos Unidas created and operates
the first private school for special education in Cusco,
“Camino Nuevo” giving hope for these children and a way
they can become involved in the society, instead of
outcasts. Manos Unidas provides quality education
and teacher training programs for children and young
adults with developmental disabilities, down syndrome,
autism and cerebral palsy. To understand the difference
of how children with disabilities are looked at in Peru
and the need, please watch the following video.
The Children of Peru Foundation helps provide
free quality surgical and dental services to poor
and under-privileged children in Peru through Medical
Mission For Children (MMFC).
Through the MMFC, medical teams perform cleft
lip and palate repairs at the Cuzco EsSalud Hospital.
The Children of Peru Foundation has sponsored and
financed 100% of MMFC’s work in Cuzco Peru from
2007-2011 and since 2010 has supported MMFC for
surgical procedures in Cajamarca Peru.
I am competing to raise
awareness of the Children of Peru Foundation
to help the needs of these children. Please join my
effort to help these kids by donating and spreading the
word. I have a minimum goal of $5,000 and I’ve
