In February 2016, LWR shipped quilts and kits to our partner in Peru – an organization called Caritas.
Caritas is distributing the resources in the most marginalized zones of Lima, as well as some of the remotest areas in Peru – sites to which other organizations and the government do not reach out. For the most part, beneficiaries are those who are excluded from public and private development efforts and policies because of poverty and extreme poverty, sex, age, or health (disabled people or people living with HIV and AIDS).
Receiving items like quilts and kits provides support for families so they can increase their chances of progressing out of poverty. The distribution is expected to reach over 30,000 people, including nearly 15,000 children.
