Last week, our board had a meeting via Skype to review our financial situation. The news isn’t good, and we need your help.
We’re in trouble.
Two years ago, in our crisis, we turned to you and you saved our children. Since then, we’ve been getting by financially, but barely. Our US board takes no pay; except for Paypal fees and maintaining this website, our President sends every dime we collect to Peru. We’ve been getting by with a mostly volunteer staff as well, and even our directors have had to go without pay at times. But we’ve been grateful to still have a home for the children, and we’ve managed.

But nothing is forever. We’ve lost some of our sources of funding as time went by — and now we find ourselves in a crisis again. We’re applying for grants that we hope will help us pay our bills, and one of our new board members has graciously offered to hire a professional grant writer for us — but that takes time.
In the meantime, we are several thousand dollars short of what we need to pay the bills every month, and we have no cash reserve. The situation is serious.
Our sweet, wise Rayshiel
We really need your support. Can you help us?
1) A monthly donation — even a small one — helps us to know we’ll be able to put food on the table for the kids in the future.
2) If you’d rather make a one-time donation to help us get through the next few months, that is also very much appreciated.
3) Please spread the word on social media, let your friends know about the great work we’re doing and direct them to this link:
