Hope in Peru

Nelly and her children

Nelly is 24 years old and lives in a situation of extreme poverty. She has four young children of ages 11, 8, 5, and a baby of 7 months. This situation makes it difficult for her to work regularly. Nelly washes clothes occasionally in order to provide for her children and herself. Her companion has a construction job but does not have steady work either. Our local partners in Peru began to reach out to Nelly with food to help meet the needs of their family. She is thankful for the assistance she has received through the Food Paks; as it has helped her to provide nutrition for her four children.

Wilber and his kids

Wilber is 38 years old and lives on a hill under extreme poverty. He was abandoned by his wife and is now looking after their three small children. He suffers much from the abandonment he has experienced. He is thankful for the Food Pak and considers it a great help in providing for the needs of his family. He only has sporadic work and lacks the ability to provide for his family in the way that steady work would allow him to. Our local volunteers visit to brings him counsel to help him navigate the delicate situation in which he finds himself emotionally.
