Project Peru: a short video about aspects of life in our refuge


This video [about 4 minutes long, with its commentary in Spanish with English sub-titles] includes input from both staff and children at our refuge.

Some comments about the film:

"I think the video is fantastic. It gives a really good flavour of life at the refuge as well as the ethos and philosophy behind it. You are right, focusing on the positives of what Project Peru is doing in the lives of these children is a refreshing approach to a charity video. Focusing on what can be achieved through truly caring for these children and giving them back their childhood, which in turn will give them the strength to face adulthood and all the challenges that will bring, presents the key philosophies on which Project Peru is founded. Well done to you all."

"I absolutely loved the video link of the children at the refuge. It is fantastic...Those children...they just look like they have amazing characters and it was lovely to look at their daily lives."

Some photos taken during the making of the film:
