Manchay Oasis

Lima | Peru

On the outskirts of Lima, Manchay Oasis Care Center was opened in 2003 to serve the poverty-stricken area of Manchay, helping mothers with their young children. Many of these mothers are not married, malnourishment and neglect are rampant, and most homes in the area are primitive shacks with no electricity or running water. read more

The number of needy children coming to the Oasis Center for help continues to grow each year. Many of them come for our preschool program while older children come either before or after school and receive a meal, hear the Gospel, and get help with their homework. 

The Oasis Center also offers basic health care services and counseling for those who have been through traumatic experiences. And our Keeping Families Together program in Manchay provides single moms with training and support in developing a small business. Every part of our work is focused on bringing hope to kids and their families who feel trapped in hopeless situations.

Manchay Story

Hope Changes Everything at Manchay Oasis

Andrew* is a boy who has dealt with more than his share of hardship. He lives in a small wooden house with his mother and three siblings, two who attend Oasis Care Center with him and one who is mentally challenged and unable to attend school. Sadly, his mother bears the full burden of caring for the family since his father has no contact with them. Adding to the family pain, a relative was convicted of molesting Andrew’s sibling and is now serving time in prison.

His mother works hard as a nanny, but they are still very poor. But now that Andrew is attending school at Oasis, he has the opportunity for a good education that can help him break the cycle of poverty and violence that is so prevalent in the country. Our prayer is that as we show Andrew love, support, and acceptance, he and his family will be open to the message of the Gospel.
