This summer I am volunteering in Peru with Childrens' Homes for Boys and Girls. Opened in 2005, the children’s homes provide a home for children whose parents can no longer support them. It is always hoped that the home will be a temporary solution and that the children will be able to return to their families shortly although this is not always possible.
I am raising funds that will be donated directly to the homes. It will be used to buy items needed by the children - it may be toys or games, books, stationery - anything that will help make their lives more fun and of value to them.
