Mission Houses in the Andes

In various towns of the Andean Cordillera of Peru the sisters serve the poorest through evangelization, basic nutrition, and the treatment of many sick people.

  • Mission in Cusibamba

    At almost 12,000 feet above sea level, a community of our Missionary Servants of the Poor Sisters works in this village helping about 140 children and a group of the elderly through a soup kitchen.

  • Mission in Rumichaca

    Here they care for children from the Saint Teresa Home in Cuzco who need a change of climate since Rumichaca is more temperate and warmer than Cuzco.

  • Mission in Punacancha

    In this village, at almost 13,000 feet above sea level, the Sisters teach catechism daily, staff a community soup kitchen for poor children, visit the sick in their homes, and teach in various schools.
