Peru General Team
We are excited to share our opportunity to visit our ministry partners in Cuzco Perú. This is a first for Eastside Global Compassion. Cuzco is a city in the Andes and was once the capital of the Inca Empire. It is now known for its archaeological remains and Spanish colonial architecture. The Plaza de Armas is the central square in the old city, with arcades, carved wooden balconies and Incan wall ruins. We will be involved in evangelistic outreach utilizing a theatrical mime drama. We will be doing home visits bringing much-needed staple food items. We will be involved in light construction on their facilities. We will also be providing programming for a few hundred children. The people of Peru are warm, inviting, and full of life. At the end of the trip, we will have two additional days of fun exploring Machu Pichu. Machu Pichu is a magnificent ruined Incan city and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Set between two towering peaks in the Andes, Machu Picchu is thought by scholars to have been built to play on astronomical elements. Built in the 15th century, and later abandoned, it is famous for its sparkling granite walls, erected without mortar, and its spectacular views. Cuzco has an elevation of 11,152 feet. There is lots of walking and lots of stairs at HIGH ELEVATION. If there is any question regarding your physical health, please get the okay from your doctor before moving too far along in the process.
