Camino de Vida is dedicated to forming life-changing partnerships with people around the world and with
those in need throughout the country of Peru.
The mission is simple: connect resources with the
people who need them.
As people’s physical needs begin to be met, their hearts become open to the beautiful message of God’s love and grace.
Here, at the "Hogar de Niños" (Children's Home), we want to give children a home—not an orphanage. We strive to give each child the love and care that they should receive from a family.
For the past 12 years, the Chaclacayo Children’s Home has been a home for numerous children. We currently have eighteen children between the ages of 12 and 19 who receive specialized care and formation in Christian values, access to an academic education, and tools they will need to improve their quality of life when they have graduated from the home to give them a brighter future.
Though many of these children will never have a physically present mother or father, we are honored to provide them with a home and a family who loves them and guides them spiritually.
Casa Gracia (Grace House) is a ministry of Camino de Vida in partnership with Hillsong Church. Casa Gracia was born out of the desire to retrieve, through the Word of God, everything that the devil has stolen from girls suffering from eating disorders, depression, and a variety of different addictions.
Casa Gracia is not a clinic, but rather a Christian refuge home that provides these girls with the tools they need to fight everyday battles. Overall, it is a place where they will learn about the unconditional love God has for them and the healing that can be found in His unending mercy and grace.
What makes building a well such an exciting project choice is that a significant number of communities can be reached with maximum effectiveness for minimal cost. A typical well serves a community of between 200 and 600 people.
Each time we build a water well, we are giving a community a not only a clean source of water, but also a brighter future.
1 Water Well: $1,200.
There are thousands of individuals in Peru who lack the ability to walk on their own and, as a result, the ability to provide for themselves and get where they need to go. That's where we come in. Through Free Wheelchair Mission (FWM) and CdV Alcance, we have assembled and distributed more than 6,000 wheelchairs to those who truly need them.
With your help, and through our partnership with FWM, you can help give the gift of mobility to someone who desperately needs it.
Although we receive the wheelchairs from Free Wheelchair Mission at no cost, Camino de Vida pays for the logistics of getting the container through customs, storage costs, and the transportation needed to distribute them.
3 Day Mass Distribution of 100+ Wheelchairs: $2,000.
In Peru, many families living in poverty do not have enough money to buy a house that adequately gives them shelter. Many times, their houses are constructed of pieces of wood, cardboard, plastic…and anything else they can find. We want to bless families by giving them a home that shelters them from the harsh natural elements.
By supporting this project, you are able to bless a family with a roof over their head and home to call their own.
1 House for a Family in Need - $1,500.
Camino de Vida is committed to helping churches reach their communities by providing them with one of the most essential elements—a building. Many congregations lack the resources to build an adequate building for their church families. Together, we can help great congregations utilize the property and materials that they have and build a place for them to worship together.
1 Church Building for a Rural Congregation: $5,000.
Natural disasters are an unfortunate and common reality in Peru. Earthquakes, flooding, and landslides occur frequently, and we want to be first in line to help those in need. We provide immediate support to those who experience natural disasters, bringing instant relief to their basic needs like food, water, warmth, and security. Through your support, we can help the affected community not only recover from their losses, but reach for a life beyond their expectations.
Servant evangelism is an important part of ministry at Camino de Vida. Our Serve Team ministers by painting houses, cleaning streets, distributing food, and building houses, among other things. We also love to surprise and delight people with God’s love through random acts of kindness, whether it be passing out chewing gum or giving out cold drinks to drivers stuck in Lima’s notorious rush hour traffic.
Our Serve Team takes an active role during the holiday seasons by distributing food and gifts to the needy in our communities. They also play an important role in reaching out to government orphanages.
