"The Orchard" Children's Home opened in August 2015 to meet a significant need in the Ucayali region of the Amazon Jungle. In this area surrounding Pucallpa, there is currently only one government-run orphanage that is overcrowded. The opening of The Orchard has been welcomed by local authorities, and they have expressed a desire for the construction of more houses to allow for more children.
This speaks to the positive relationship and positive impact that has already been observed by all in the first house full of children. The construction of the next house is ready to begin, and hopefully it will be open to more children at the end of 2016 into the beginning of 2017.
