With even a small donation you could be providing a healthy meal for these children.
We need your support to help these communities rise out of hardship and poverty. Without a continued education and improved nutritional health, these children have no way of escaping the circle of poverty suffered by so many previous generations – indeed some may never live to see a healthy adulthood.
By supporting us, you will help change people’s lives.
Cash donations can be made at Hearts Café in Ollantaytambo in our ‘Donations’ box. Please pop in and visit us.

Living Heart is always grateful to receive parcels of:
- Warm clothes: Thick, knitted, new clothes for babies and children (age 0-10 years (Western sizes)) – especially leggings without feet, hats for the babies that cover the ears and jumpers of all sizes. Also warm jumpers and leggings without feet for abandoned elderly (for hygienic purposes, we are unable to accept any second-hand underwear).
- Medicines: Anti-parasitical medicines (mebendazole), cold and flu remedies, paracetamol, ibuprofen for the children; and aspirin (75mg or 100mg for blood pressure), fluconazole or clotrimazole (for vaginal infections) for the women and elderly in our communities.
- Dental supplies: Toothbrushes and toothpaste.
- School supplies: Pencils, A4 ruled/grid notebooks, creative games. Any game that encourages the children to think laterally.
- Ensure that all parcels are under 2 kg as packages weighing more than this will incur tax duties that Living Heart is unable to pay.
- If you wish to send clothes, ensure they look as new, as unfortunately secondhand clothes are not accepted by Peruvian customs.
- Ensure that the value of any parcels are marked as less than $100, as a tax will be applied if the declared value is over $100.
- All parcels more than 2 kg are opened and inspected by Peruvian customs.
- The parcels must be addressed to an individual and as follows:
PO Box 133
Please contact Living Heart to ask which person the parcel should be addressed to.
A warm thank you from every child, woman and man in our communities.
Your compassion, help and dedication mean that every day we are one small step closer to achieving our goals.
