The conception of Villa Martha is a dream that germinated from the 70's
in the mind and heart of a Peruvian family, which begins in late 1996
to be realized through the purchase of land, which would later serve to
start the construction of the Charity. We can now say that this dream
is a reality that gave shelter and protection, tenderness, love and education
to over 700 children and adolescents.
The realization of this project was not easy. The road was long and
thorny. They were very important in this way the advice and support of
the Nazarene Sisters Co-Founders of this Charity, in my constant visits
to the Lord of Miracles. Also in this way, I always found understanding
and support from my sister Margot who lived like me all the experiences.
I believe the Lord knows what you have in your heart and the forces that
you have to reach your goal.
Today we talked about a finished work where
72 children find peace and life expectancy. In this dream now realized, many
years have passed but always prevailed the desire to serve others by helping
abandoned and neglected children.
This work is devoted entirely to them and for no reason in the present
or future times, this goal cannot be changed. Children are moral owners
of this institution which was formed non-profit with the goal of protecting
and maintaining children (boys and girls) and adolescents who are morally
or materially abandoned.
Where possible, children will self sustain on work in the field, on the
farm and in the workshops, where they will learn to grow their own food
and wear their own bodies and sanctify his soul without being child beggars.
My spirit grows in seeing the happiness that Villa Martha represents
many children, today, tomorrow and always, with the indulgence of my Mother
I invite you to join our family. We look forward to working with you.
