Welcome to the Peru-Gruppe Heubach Homepage

Those who have seen the poorest of the world,
feel wealthy enough to help.

Albert Schweitzer

In 1996 a small ecumenical group travelled from Heubach to Peru under the leadership of parish vicar Frank Esche and his wife Elena Muguruza de Esche. One of the intentions of the trip was to make contact with women’s organisations in La Ensenada and Laderas, two poor districts on the outskirts of Lima.

The impressions gained were so deep and stirring, that a dedicated and solidarity commitment followed with the people in Laderas / Lima, till this day. With raised money from various funding campaigns we are supporting Peruvian self-help groups, whose activities are focused on a variety of areas.
