On September 9th, fire ripped through Belen in Iquitos Peru where Rodolfo and Sariad hold weekly children’s clubs. 32 homes went up in flames leaving many families displaced. Miraculously no one died. The blaze started, most likely from a candle that addicts use as they get high on crack cocaine.  The residents were awoken at 2 am with enough time to run from the blaze. Many families were left with only the clothes on the back.

Over the course of the next several days, several churches in Iquitos banded together and brought in relief supplies for those who lost everything. A tangible expression of provide hope in difficult times! Missionary Ventures Canada will continue to reach out to the Belen Kids’ with the good news of Jesus Christ sharing with them hope of a new life.

Now comes the effort of finishing suppling the home, building a gazebo and playground for the children. With your donation, you can impact a life – bring hope to children at risk.
