The Chimbote Foundation’s Mission

The Chimbote Foundation was created to provide a bridge of love, hope, faith and financial support to care for the poorest of the poor in Chimbote through the Center for Social Works – a maternity hospital, outpatient clinic, clinical laboratory, pharmacy and home for abandoned and neglected children – serving hundreds of thousands since the mid-1960s.

With Gratitude for an Outpouring of Support

Give Big LogoWe were overwhelmed by the generosity of our donors in responding to the Give Big Pittsburgh COVID-19 campaign. Please know how extremely grateful and blessed we are by your compassion and kindness to our brothers and sisters in Chimbote.

After a discussion with Fr. DiNardo, the Vicar General, and Dolores Nypaver, the Director of the stewardship office, and Deacon Rick Tucek, it has been decided this year that the Peru mission trips are cancelled because of the coronavirus. This step was taken out of an abundance of caution for the missionaries and the people of Chimbote.

Thank you to all who had the willingness to travel to help the poorest of the poor.
