Huacho is located north of Lima and is home to over 90,000 people.
HELPING AN ORPHANAGE IN HUACHO
The Huacho orphanage was the first orphanage I visited in Peru. This orphanage, which is 3 hours north of Lima, houses both boys and girls ranging in age from 5 to 17 years old. We travel to this orphanage twice a month to be with the children and to provide them with clothing, shoes, beds, or blankets. Our biggest thrill is to take these children out of the orphanage for a full day of swimming and playing in a park. We also love to take them out to a movie and a meal. This orphanage is also where I met my two sons. They were little boys without much hope. Each time I visit this orphanage, I remember the place I first saw them.
