In Partnership With: CASA HOGAR "El Amor de dios"

Proposed Project Dates

3rd July to 17th July 2021

About The Mission

Casa Hogar ''El Amor De Dios'' is an orphanage in Arequipa Peru. Our team in 2018 visited Casa Hogar and quickly realised that they could do with some help. The orphanage is run by a married couple Jose and Gloria Ingalls who personally fund the majority of the costs of running this organisation from their own pocket. There are a large number of children from a wide range of ages and abilities, some are wheelchair bound, and some have special needs but most just want to be loved. The children live in cramped conditions, but they are clean, well-organised and each child is cared for physically, mentally and spiritually. Jose and Gloria live by faith, not knowing from day to day how they will feed these children in their care, but in Jose’s own words “God always provides”. Our team came away greatly encouraged.

 About The Work

Jose and Gloria would like to separate the older children from the younger ones and they have managed to secure a house which they plan to turn in to a home for their teenagers. This will benefit the development of the teenagers and make more room for the younger children. The house does not have electricity or water yet. They have asked LIFT to carry out modifications to the home, including electrical work, plumbing work and general building works. This team was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19.
