Covering the world in prayer: Pray for South America

Please pray with us for World Vision’s work in South America — Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Brazil. While many of these countries are still recovering from years of internal violence and political instability, each faces unique challenges today.

Peru’s moving past

MAY 1, 2015, PERU — Once, Quechua people were invisible. Then they were victims. Those who survived were marginalized. From 1980 to 2000, families in the Andean highlands were easy prey for Shining Path terrorists and the military. Both claimed to fight for them even while they killed them: peasant or terrorist — what’s the difference? Good has emerged from the horror. With World Vision standing with them, Quechua have become citizens. They’ve found the courage to speak truth. Today, they are part of Peru’s future.
