Lima Kids football 2017

 We tried ...but for reasons beyond our control this competion eventually did not take place in 2017

It's not so much the 'winning' as the 'getting there'! We'd love some support to provide transport costs this year for our participation in this annual competition which restarts for 2017 in August in Cieneguilla.

Every year when we can we participate in the competitive football league between all the children's homes in Lima [LIMA KIDS]. In November 2012 the Project Peru girls' team [15-17 years] won the 'Lima Kids' football competition and in 2013 and 2014 the younger girls' team [12-14] won the cup; in 2016 this same group of girls [now the 15-17's] won the cup again.

Two more houses built for flood victims

In May and June 2017 Project Peru was able to go twice to Paramonga north of our refuge and with two teams of staff, volunteers, family members with local people we were able to complete two simple new houses for people who had lost everything. This sort of community work is only possible for us after generous donations. We were particularly grateful for donations to help with all this relief work from a Peruvian restaurant in Berlin [Chicha Berlin- htttp://www.facebook.com/ChichaBerlin]  Do look back at more of our News items in April, May and June 2017 to see more on the floods and our reponse.
