In January, eight people from Georgian Shores United will be headed to Peru as part of team going under the auspices of Friends of the Orphans Canada which is an affiliate of Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (Our little brothers and sisters) [link]. Five adults and three youth will be travelling to San Vicente de Cañete where they will help in the building of either the baby house or the dining hall.
The group has already raised $23,638 of the total $30,136 for the mission trip. The final $6,500 required will be applied to the $8,000 building fund donation, which is part of our commitment ($1,000 per person). In addition the group would like to raise another $2,500 to use to purchase extra supplies for the orphanage, for a total goal of $9,000.
