World Servants is working alongside Peru Hope in the city of Huaycan, a suburb of Lima, Peru. Huaycan is home to thousands of immigrant settlers from different parts of Peru, looking to improve their standard of living and job opportunities in the city of Lima. It is one of the poorest neighborhoods of the capital of Peru.

The people living in Huaycan are hard-working, friendly and family-oriented. The normal household income is less than $9,000.00 per year. Living conditions are simple, but challenging. Most families live in one or two room houses made of handmade mud bricks/wood and thatched roofs with kitchens and latrines located outside.

IS IT SAFE?

TRIP SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Trip safety is extremely important to World Servants and our host community. The community we are working and staying in is considered very safe and we do not anticipate any safety issues.

COVID-19 Safety Response

We are working diligently to address the directives of the communities we serve in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Obviously, there will be adjustments as World Servants is mainly a high touch relational organization and we will be restrained from many of our normal practices in serving together. To start we are having each person traveling with us complete a survey with questions concerning travel and illness related to COVID-19. Our plan during the trip is to make sure each person wears masks daily as we are serving in community and daily temperature checks will be administered. While social distancing will be a challenge, we will brainstorm ways we can focus on the task at hand while staying a safe distance from each other.

World Servants will also be working with our partner communities to determine when and how we can serve to protect them as well as our volunteers. Each community may look different in terms of how volunteers can serve that will make a difference.

We will continue to update all our stakeholders as governments, communities, and travel opens around the world.
