History
In April of 2008, my wife and I left the states to work in Peru in some of the very poorest sections of Lima. It was the
fulfillment of a promise we had made many years earlier to return to Milena’s home country and try to address the
issues of poverty and addiction that plague so many people in the slums around Lima. Specifically we wanted to set
up feeding centers---comedors---through local churches to help kids, and also to work with addicts through a recovery
program called Celebrate Recovery which aims to stop the primary addiction and then work through “life issues” with
others who have been through the same battles. The past two and a half years we’ve been busy with this work in Lima
but have now returned to the U.S. where we are currently focused on raising the needed funds to maintain these
ongoing projects. In addition, we want to organize several new projects we have been planning for a year now. To
monitor the progress of each project and to maintain financial accountability, Milena and I will travel to Peru 4 or 5
times per year, as needed, to ensure the success of
each program per our expectations as well as our
donors.

Palabra Viva Comedor
This comedor was scheduled to open mid 2010
but a loss of funding halted the project after the
church renovations had been completed and kitchen
equipment purchased. At present there are 100
kids signed up and waiting for the initiation of this
program. The church has volunteers ready to staff
the center and all the initial paperwork to register
the kids has been done. All that is needed now is
the funding to cover the costs of food purchases and
dinnerware.

Comedor Goals
Each feeding center has two primary
objectives:
1. To provide a healthy, nutritious meal
to the kids 5 days per week. This as we
have seen improves the health, spirits
and emotional stability of the kids.
2. To keep kids in school and eliminate
the argument some parents use that to
feed the family, their kids must work in
the streets selling candies, etc.

Sustainability

Annual Expenditures
Based on two other feeding centers that we administer,
annual costs to feed 100 kids lunch 5 days per week will run
approximately $3,500 X QUARTER OR $12-13K per year. Not
included in these figures are our travel expenses to oversee
theses processes and certain charitable expenses which arise
over the course of a year. Usually these unforeseen expenses
are medical in nature and may include doctors’ bills, medicines,
eyeglasses, etc.

Very little can be done in Peru to
generate the funds necessary to
maintain this comedor and thus
we must rely on the generosity of
our donors. The church does hold
various fund raisers throughout the
year, but the monies realized through
these activities are minimal and help
with church expenses such as water,
electricity, Bibles, children’s ministry,
etc.

Project Managers: Jack &
Milena Meier, Missionaries

In addition to the feeding center, Palabra Viva has recently
initiated a Celebrate Recovery program in their church which
we intend to support with materials and training courses for the
church leaders.

From the recipients of your gift, Many Thanks! Muchas
Gracias!
