Lima, Peru

Orphanage in Lima

This community of Sisters is called the Virgen of Lourdes Center and is located in Lima, the capital of Peru. It has taken this name because it houses the poor children that come down from the mountains to have surgeries, children who obviously need all the care and attention the Sisters can give.

This house also serves as the house of formation for the Sisters studying nursing, teaching, etc.

It is beautiful to see how the Sisters take advantage of the various specialties acquired in their studies to better serve the children and facilitate their treatment in the capital where they have access to sophisticated treatments that are not found in Cuzco and even less in their poor villages.
