Archives For Peru

If you read my last blog, you would have seen that Global Partners in Life is now serving in Peru. I have found an organization that not only helps orphans, but helps widows as well. The orphanage is called New Life Children’s Home and it is located east of Lima, Peru, in an area called Cieneguilla, Peru. After my first visit, I must tell you I was very impressed… would you like to see why?

One of the first things I noticed was the large and very clean dining room and kitchen. The staff at New Life Children’s Home are very capable of providing nutritious meals, and yes, even birthday cakes in their industrial sized kitchen. The food I had there was absolutely delicious!

Probably the first thing I noticed about this children’s home was the wall surrounding the facility. Not only does this keep the children safe, but it had a colorful paint job as well. The children had lots of open space for playing and many different activities available for them. In the photo above, you can see the trampoline, swing set, rock climbing wall, and a structure like Noah’s Ark. In the photo below, you can see the basketball court that also is a soccer (excuse me, but it is called football in Peru) field!

The facility was amazingly clean! For the most part, the children live in barracks based on their gender and age. One of the most amazing facts about the New Life Children’s Home is they try to maintain one nanny for every 4 children, and the nannies actually live in the barracks with the children for whom they provide care. To my knowledge, there is only one child there with a special needs, which is different from the main orphanage we provide for in China. Check out how clean and organized the barracks are in the photographs below!

I am very happy to be able to give support to the New Life Children’s Home! The leader of the facility works very closely with the government trying to meet the needs of the children and help find adoptive families for the children. In fact, while I was there, a brother and sister were told they were going to be adopted by a family in the States! 

For those of you that support Global Partners in Life financially, thanks so much! Because of you, the children in Peru are being cared for at a high level while waiting to be adopted! For that, I will never be able to say thank you enough!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

As I try to increase the size of the impact of Global Partners in Life, I look for reputable people that are serving orphans and widows. I just found a potential partner in Peru. Obviously, I wanted to check them out, so I just had my first trip to Lima. Would you like to see some of the sights?

All of the photos I will show you today are from an area near the airport in Lima. I am not sure what this building is, but I do know I saw several government buildings, historical buildings, and some museums. 

As you can see from the photograph above, some of the buildings truly had some unique characteristics.  This particular building was on one of the main streets going through Lima.

In the photo above you will find another beautiful building. The airport is near the coast, and for some reason, the coast is much colder than just 12 miles to the east. My apologies for the glare on this picture!

The last two photos are of some of the larger buildings I saw. The Peruvian people are very proud of their culture, heritage, and independence they won from Spain. They have many plazas and parks, which many people enjoy. The parks are nestled in between the buildings and traffic. It was interesting to see how just a small space would be used for a park, and many people would enjoy it, and you can see in the photos below. By the way, the next two photographs are not as close to the airport as the buildings.

If you have ready many of my blogs, you know I enjoy traveling. I can tell you my trip to Peru went well, and I look forward to sharing more with you about the trip. Hopefully you can enjoy some trips soon as well!
