The purpose of the project is to provide medicine to the detained and secretarial services for the Chaplain at Peru's largest prison, San Pedro de Lurigancho. The facility was initially built for 3,300 prisoners but now holds 10,000, which makes it the most densely populated prison in the Americas.

The aim is to accompany people abandoned by society and for many, even by family.  Established in 1999, the project continues to provide medical and pastoral care to the forgotten.  Give today and you will help save a life.
