Nestled between the mountains of Cusco, Peru is the Hogar de Niñas San Judas Chico, a home to about forty-five sweet Peruvian girls between the ages of 4 and 17. San Judas is a place for girls whose families are unable to properly take care of them to stay, but more importantly it is a safe, loving and protective home which can help provide these sweet, spunky, smart, loving and hilarious girls with comfort and compassion as they grow. Many of the girls come from difficult backgrounds, and San Judas is all they have to call their own.
Volunteers from Maximo Nivel and other organizations hope to make a difference in the lives of the girls by giving them affection and help, by playing with them, by spending time simply loving them (it's impossible not to.) However, San Judas is not a well-financed organization, and (especially in Peru) the smallest amount of money can go a long way to buy the girls school supplies, medicine and vitamins, and numerous other things that can improve their quality of life.
This page has been created as an ongoing fundraiser for San Judas. What this means is that we will continue to update you all on current and completed projects, listing goal amount and project details as they continue to change.
If you choose to donate and improve the life of these girls who so deserve it, you can rest assured any money you contribute towards San Judas will be put to good use and appreciated greatly. As volunteers who work one-on-one with the girls on a daily basis, we can testify to their loving and spirited demeanors and to how appreciated your donation will be. Please consider donating to San Judas today!
For now a primary purchase we would love to make is personal closets for all of the girls. They have so little personal space, so little that is theirs alone, that it would be incredibly valuable for them to have a place that they can call their own.
