Peru Volunteer Outreach | Children and Orphans in Peru

Peru | National FlagAs one of the largest countries in South America, Peru’s total population exceeds 28 million people, 38 percent comprised of children under the age of 17.  In this solitary country, there are over 10 million children living in conditions of extreme poverty. Unsurprisingly, these Peruvian children are plagued with chronic malnutrition, inhibiting proper growth and development, generating a multitude of cognitive and physical difficulties throughout the early stages of life. The indigenous history of Peruvian civilization has tremendous influence on cultures within society. Retaining such simplicity of life contributes to the suffering children endure throughout their lives, without proper education or access to hygienic necessities to maintain health.

The Liddle Kidz Foundation Global programs support children who due to illness, disease and unsanitary conditions suffer to maintain regular health.  Our programs support children living in these conditions with the necessary touch therapy to encourage healthy weight gain, nutrient absorption and appropriate development of mind, body and spirit.  In these cases, we work to overcome these disparities by providing education and consistent nurturing care.
