Thanks to work being done by Madre Coraje NGO, another container with over 20,000 kilograms of donations will arrive to Peru to help some of the country’s poorest children.

Among the donations being sent to the Andean country are over 11,000 kilograms of books and school supplies that will be distributed to schools and libraries.

The poverty in which many of these children live does not allow them to receive a quality education.

Helping children get a good education in this difficult situation has become one of Madre Coraje’s priorities.

"The shipment of books, school supplies and food are fundamental in guaranteeing that children go to school and improve their educational development," said a press release issued by the NGO.

The Diputación de Málaga and the Ayuntamiento de Córdoba have provided the financial assistance necessary to make this donation possible.

Aside from the school supplies, clothes and food being sent, nine welding machines are also on their way to Peru to help teach adolescents new skills.
