THE STORY:

WHY THIS PARTICULAR CHARITY?

Back in 2014 I had traveled for a few weeks throughout Peru. The beauty of this nation was absolutely unreal from the steps of Machu Picchu to the villages of the Amazon tribal communities. Unfortunately the severe improverished state of the many children walking around homeless, parentless, and just in desparate need of food was a very very noticeable site. Along these travels, actually ended up running into a fellow traveler who was associated with this Foundation, which was a very exciting site when I was considering what charity I should run for.

 

MISSION -

“The Children of Peru Foundation is dedicated to building a better future for poor children in Peru. We raise funds to make grants to a select group of non-governmental organizations working in Peru to provide better healthcare and education for poor children.”

 

HISTORY OF CHARITY -

In 2006, Edouard and Zaralina Ruelle created The Children of Peru Foundation. The two had explored Peru—witnessing the marvelous ruins of ancient civilizations of the ancient peoples. They stood speechless in the magical places of Macchu Picchu and Chanchan, and discovered the beauty in Titicaca Lake and the dense forest areas.While traveling and exploring, it was hard for the couple not to notice and sympathize for many children walking the streets living in poverty. The children were working, not attending school and suffering with disease. Edouard and Zaralina later found out these children lived in dysfunctional families where sexual abuse was common, were victims of child labor and did not have adequate access to healthcare.The couple created the not-for-profit organization in the United States, and began raising money to help finance NGOs in Peru who were dedicated to helping impoverished children in Peru.
