Peru: God’s Word Feeds Hungry Families
Hungry children receive breakfasts and Bible lessons.

One year ago, an earthquake shook eight rural communities of Peru, leaving several hundred Peruvians without a home. The disaster was especially debilitating for a region already accustomed to poverty; more than 17 percent of children under the age of five in Peru suffer from chronic malnutrition.
In response, Peruvian Bible Society is meeting the physical and spiritual needs of children affected by the earthquake by providing them with nutritious breakfasts every day and Bible classes every week. Peruvian Bible Society also provides pastoral care and health education for impoverished adults in the region. Thanks to support from American Bible Society’s financial partners, hungry families in Peru are finding strength in Jesus, the Bread of Life.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
