Magic show, contests with prizes, songs and beautiful gift for each child - those were happy hours spent with children in Huaycan filled with laughter and joy! We would like to thank sponsors (see the list), volunteers and administration of zona 12 de Agosto for all your help and making it possible! On the site we joined forces with volunteers and doctors from Ministerio de Salud that conducted free medical campaign for mommies while their children were having fun playing with us.
Program started with the show of magic, and what show that was! Kids were spellbound by living dove appearing from "empty" hat, white bunny they could pet at the end. Interactive show by Magojan kept kids entertained for 45 min. And they didn't just watched, the bolder ones had a chance to participate and performed tricks themselves!
After the show, we started the tournaments. By this time the sun came out and the day was bright and sunny. Each child received a "pass" that would enable them to get the prize. They needed to complete each game: pop the balloon with the dart, catch the fish, bowling, rings. Of course there were no losers and everyone was eligible to recieve their prizes: beautiful girl purses (thank you Iasa Corporation-Do It!), dragons and princesses (hats of to Bembos), and colorful quality vinyl balls (thanks to CIPSA).
While children were playing, mommies participated in free medical campaign by Ministerio de Salud concerning the usage of certain medications.
Special thanks to Sra. Marita for driving us to Huaycan and helping during the program.
Jemima, Karen and Karlita you were big help with the children!

Dentists donate their services
Recently the team of orthodontist with their mobile dentist unit accompany us on our visits to Huaycan. They donate their time and equipment to provide dental care for mothers and children. We watched with amazement how much they can do in such difficult conditions, where there is no running water and no electricity. Applause and hats off to you Sr. Janet and Sr. Veronica! SEE PHOTOS
On April 28th, we held program of donating educational books for 500 children from Institucion de Educativa "Patrica Antonia Lopez" from Santa Anita. Maria prepared interactive games for children. Captivating show of magic presented by our dear friend MagoJan who volunteered his talents for this occasion kept children spellbound. Present were mayor of Santa Anita, Leonor Chumbimune. Books were sponsored by "Activated Ministries" in USA. Thank you all!
We are happy to report that the project to construct a new community center (Asentamiento Humano) in the Villa San Juan district of Pamplona Alta was completed successfully. We wish to thank the visiting team that came down from Michigan (U.S.) to help us with this humanitarian initiative. Ed, Judith, Marv, Anita, Elaine, and Erin lived with us at our center/residence for 2 weeks and worked side-by-side with us, donating both their time and financial resources in a desire to help our Sanando Corazones charity improve the lives of the 60 families that are serviced by the small center. We couldn't have done it without your help! Much thanks also to our local Peruvian colleagues, who also helped in many different ways. It was a true teamwork effort, and every person was needed.
We want to thank all the volunteers for a job well done! Their tireless work and unselfish giving bettered the lives of hundreds of people much less fortunate than ourselves. We look forward to greater participation and collaboration in the future
