People of Peru Project is dedicated to the relief of human suffering, caring for children, education for self help and planting the seeds of hope.
At the headwaters of the Amazon River, Iquitos, a city of 450,000 people surrounding by thousands of square miles of jungle, is plagued by poverty and all that comes with it. Disease, parasites, malnutrition, rampant tooth decay and premature death are but a few of the life threatening challenges faced in this area. As in any third world country with conditions like this, the children suffer most. Many are left alone to survive on the streets or in the surrounding jungle with no parent or family unit to provide care. The People of Peru Project is providing aid to as many children as possible in this region of Peru.Learn more at http://www.peopleofperu.org
