Mama Kia's Orphanage in Peru

Best Blogger Tips
As we've lots of plans to volunteer with projects helping the small and furry creatures of this world we thought it would be a good idea to volunteer alongside some of our own species too.

I was reading through some blogs on TravelPod, which we will also be using while we're away (you can find our TravelPod site here)... anyway, I found a post by a couple who had really great things to say about an orphanage in Peru, and so I came across Casa De Milagros (House of Miracles).

I have sent Casa De Milagros an email and hopefully we will be able to set something up so that we can volunteer or visit there for a bit while we're in Peru. If so, I hope we will also be able to spread the word amongst you guys at home and beyond, and encourage any kind donations for the orphanage.

Here's a really inspiring video about the lady that began Casa De Milagros, Mama Kia, who sadly passed away in 2010.

PLEASE NOTE: The address at the end of the video to send donations to is no longer valid! For donation information please visit their how to help page.

"Our orphanage is a unique healing home where we encourage growth by providing the children with proper health, a good education, art, and recreational and social activities. At Casa de Milagros the children and adults live as a single family, in an atmosphere filled with love and creativity. Living within a cooperative environment all of our children learn how to manage interpersonal relationships, respect each other, and use non-offensive verbal communication. We are a home where children can be children."
