Located on the outskirts of Lima, Oasis Family Center seeks to rescue, redeem, and restore children through family strengthening. Poverty here is widespread, with homes often made of scavenged scraps of wood. Malnutrition, neglect, and violence are daily realities for children, and our program has grown over the years as more children have come for help.
Diana* first came to Kids Alive when she was two years old and was enrolled in our daycare program. Like most of the parents of kids in our program, her parents were not married. At one point they were homeless, unemployed, and had little hope for the future. But their involvement at Oasis changed the whole family! Now in 4th grade, Diana is learning in a safe, loving environment where she also receives healthy meals and hears every day how much Jesus loves her. Her parents are now working, and her father recently put his faith in Jesus. The whole family is now attending and serving in the local church together. It was a blessing to see Diana’s parents display their commitment to their faith by getting married. This little girl’s life reflects the love of God, and we give glory to God for His work in her family as well. They are a beautiful picture of how a small beginning in daycare can reap eternal benefits!
