This is a wonderful initiative for the Peruvian children suffering of cancer and in need of complex medical treatment as well as moral and material support. Claudia Lorenz, a native Münchener, and Maria Virginia Siccha dedicate a lot of time and resources to help the cancer-suffering children. Amazingly, 100% of the donations (no money are withheld for the charity’s operational expenses) go towards maintaining a small hostel for needy families with children with cancer, located in the close vicinity of the Lima hospital. Before this project, most children and their parents were sometimes forced to sleep in the street while waiting in line to be treated in the hospital. Unfortunately, the needs are overwhelming and we are working towards raising the necessary funds to extend the hostel capacity as well as the support for children’s medical treatments.
