An enthusiastic team of volunteers from a major UK company working in Lima, several of whom are regular visitors to our refuge anyway, had an ‘awayday’ before Christmas 2018, painting new lines for our football and basketball pitches, as well as painting the goalposts, the volley-ball posts, renewing the nets, and repainting the basketball ‘backboards’ and the seating terraces.
One comment from the team: ‘Project Peru has done so much for these young people, so we’re glad to help in some way. We all enjoy being part of something positive and working with people full of enthusiasm.’
The dimensions of the whole sports pitch are 30 metres x 18 metres; this construction was originally funded and built from scratch by a team of students from the UK Universities Air Squadrons in July-August 2005
