In Partnership With: CASA HOGAR "El Amor de dios"
Proposed Project Dates
20th June to 4th July 2020
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 Gloris Ingalls, who personally fund the majority of the costs of running the 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 young ones and they have managed to secure a house which they plan to turn into 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.
