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.

Witnessing Jesus in Chimbote:
Calling all the Messengers
Highlighting both the enormous impact of those priests and nuns who have served the mission over the past fifty years, and the new volunteers who are participating in the Foundation’s inaugural week-long mission trips, the 2016 Chimbote Mission video calls all of us as messengers to bear witness to the love, faith and needs of the poor in Chimbote.
Annual Missions to Chimbote
Our missionaries are doing Christ’s work in this far away land, and through His grace, are providing hope for the poor of Peru while sustaining them body and soul, and renewing their sense of dignity.
How You Can Get Involved
“By taking the walk together, you can ensure that the people of Chimbote will not walk the streets alone.”
— Bishop David A. Zubik

WEEKLY PRAYER REFLECTION
Scientists, like all human beings, will make decisions upon what ultimately gives meaning and value to their lives and to their work. This they will do well or poorly, with the reflective depth that theological wisdom can help them attain, or with an unconsidered absolutizing of their results beyond their reasonable and proper limits. – St. John Paul II
This week, we pray for the scientists in the lab, at the mission and throughout the world, who use their talents to glorify God.

We currently have no scheduled events. Until then, there are more ways to show your support.
