what we do
During the peak of the pandemic, Make a Miracle was feeding 15 communities in Peru through pop up soup kitchens called Olla Comuns or "Shared Pot." We provided the staples: rice, beans, pasta, cooking oil, sugar and oatmeal. People shared what they had: a chicken, some onion, a fish.
Neighborhood volunteers worked tireless to cook, clean and serve 2 meals per day.
This translated to:
2800 meals served per day
19,600 meals weekly
196,000 total meals
We delivered 5,000 pounds of food each week (video below)
A big thank you to the Sisters of Bon Secours ministry for providing much of this food, as well as funds to build 3 permanent soup kitchens. Their generous grant will also stock these soup kitchens for the first year. Together we are working to strike out hunger in San Juan de Lurigancho, Lima, Peru.
