SPECIAL NEWS ABOUT A HOME FOR CHILDREN IN IQUITOS PERUHOGAR GENESIS
HOGAR GENESIS – IQUITOS, PERU
Missionary Ventures Canada along with Mision Cristiana Kids & Family (a Peruvian charity) are together working towards setting a home which will care for abandoned and neglected children.
Our ministry also extends into the drug holes in Iquitos, Peru, the place that a drug addict goes to get their next high. It costs 1 Sol (40 cents) for a hit. If you visit this place, you will find people sitting, standing, walking or sleeping – like zombies. Sadly, life passes them by … 2 years, 5 years, 20 years of wasted life. What breaks my heart more is that women, who get addicted, are often times raped in these places. Life for these women is filled with abuse, cruelty and exploitation. They conceive and sadly, in many cases, give birth in these drug holes while still high on the effects of drugs. After giving birth, many women are left with few options in dealing with their new baby.
Missionary Ventures Canada, along with Rodolfo and Saraid, our national missionaries in Iquitos, are slowly rescuing these children while continuing the work with various slums. We have three children in the community who have been rescued and could have died in the drug holes – while care for these children is merely adequate, they should be in the home. We need YOUR help is opening this home.
Hogar Genesis – Iquitos Peru
Because every life matters to GOD!
Every dollar donated to Missionary Ventures Canada for “Hogar Genesis,” in Iquitos Peru, will be matched and go toward the initial set-up costs so that the home can be opened and children can be rescued. This children’s home will house rescued and abandoned children who would otherwise not survive. Presently, there are three children who should be in the home, but we are unable to have them until the purchase is completed.
Please consider being a part of bringing the love of Jesus to these precious children.
