(Peru) AIDS Shelter for Women and Children
This is one of two AIDS shelters in Peru for women and children. Located in Lima, Hogar de Vida houses four women and 12 children. It is also a drop-in center for HIV patients — 14 women and 32 children. Most of them come from the provinces and have few family members, if any, in Lima.
In addition to serving three meals a day, Hogar provides occupational therapy and assistance to people navigating the complex public health system. A large portion of the program cost is for food, so your gift will give an AIDS patient a hot meal and a reason to go on.
