We created this video for Living Heart, an NGO run by Sonia Newhouse, a truly inspirational human. Here's what they do (from their website LivingHeartPeru.org):
Living Heart is a registered Peruvian charity and official UK Charity supporting various communities situated in the high Andes around the Sacred Valley of Peru, near Cusco, and has been since August 2007.
We are not a “hand-out” organization; we operate with integrity and compassion believing that our local knowledge and good reputation is a result of collaborating with the people of our communities who equally have responsibilities within our initiatives. Together we create a more sustainable, long-term solution.
Our main areas of focus are nutrition, health, education and conservation. Our evaluation initiative is always carried out prior to making an agreement with a community to proffer our support in these areas. In this manner we are able to know that our support is going where it is crucially needed, especially to disadvantaged and chronically malnourished children.
Our office is in Hearts Café, Ollantaytambo and our main vision is to have a home for abandoned children as well as continuing to support the highland communities.
We are very grateful to all our supporters and followers who have helped us in many ways including donating, fundraising, sponsoring, advertising plus volunteering and we look forward to continued support from them and many others too.
