My name is Jessica vellino-Woodall and I am 17 years old and on August 3rd I will be going to Cusco in Peru in order to alleviate poverty and work with children in the local orphanages. I will be over there for three weeks and will be going alone. The children I will be working with have no family, no real home, no education and not much hope.

Many of these children have been abandoned or have been given up by their parents or they have lost their parents. These children are victims of war, poverty, abuse and disease. No child deserves to live a life of any of those things but unfortunately they do. I cannot wipe the face of poverty and I cannot give all of those children homes, families and safety. But I can give them hope and belief in the fact that there is a way out of the everyday suffering they face and I can spread joy throughout their souls and give them momentary happiness. I can guide them and steer them away from war and a lifetime of loss. I can protect their innocent minds from being manipulated and corrupted. I can give them a visionary of a way out.

Whilst I am over there I will be taking part in daily care of the children; washing, feeding and connecting with children. Understanding them and making them feel as though they have somebody.

Your donations will help me get the immunisations I need so I am protected whilst I am in cusco. It will also help me pay for essentials like books, pencils, pens and toiletries for the children. But most importantly it will help me get there so I can make a difference In their lives and so I can share with them my enthusiasm and my skills in order to help them build a brighter future for themselves, in order to help them see the light at the end of the dark tunnel they find themselves stuck in everyday. These children are alone and lost and don't see a way out. Please donate and help me show them the way out. Thank you.
