Story

Thank you for visiting my fund raising page for Project Peru. I visited the refuge in Lima during my recce period and it is the most amazing place. The kids come from very varied backgrounds but are all incredibly well looked after and happy at the refuge. It was a very special place to be for a few days and a charity that you can donate to without having to worry about where your money goes to. No UK staff are paid  - it ALL goes to the refuge.

Project Peru is a small, lively totally voluntary charity offering food, clothes, shelter, education and fun to the children who live in their refuge in the desert shanty towns of Lima,.Peru. They also give ongoing direct and practical help to communities, women's cooperatives and soup kitchens both locally and in the interior of the country. In the UK , as well as event-based fundraising, they  raise awareness of development issues.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor us: Project Peru will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

So please sponsor me now!

Many thanks for your support.
