Projects in Peru
In Peru, the foundation supports and visits regularly several orphanages and children homes.
The orphanage Mahanaim in the outer area of Lima is a well organised und structured institution. The Embolo Foundation supports the orphanage with donated materials and finances a part of the yearly costs to provide the children with milk.
In the Peruvian highlands, girls are among the especially disadvantaged population groups. The association ANJ Kinderhilfe e.V. maintains an orphanage in San Pedro de Junin for around 18 girls between 1 and 18 years old.
The past of these girls is often affected by tragic events like violence, negligence or the loss of parents.
In the orphanage, the girls have a safe home where they can grow up with support and love. The association provides the girls a good education, professional care and thus gives them the chance to break out of the circle of poverty.
Since the sanitary facilities are in a really bad condition, the Embolo Foundation decided to provide safe, functional and hygenic sanitary facilities as well as too finance the renovation
Additionally, the Embolo Foundation supports the association ANJ Kinderhilfe e.V. with a sponsorship and collects clothes and shoes for girls.
