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.


CHIMBOTE: Be Courageous. Lead the Way.

The inspiring story of a Catholic healthcare mission serving the poorest of the poor in Chimbote, Peru, for more than 50 years. Told by award-winning videographer, retired professor, 2017 Pittsburgh Mission Team member, Dr. Dennis Woytek as he returns to our Chimbote Mission eight years after his first visit. Walk with Dennis through the barrios where the destitute poor live; and witness the live-giving, life-sustaining service provided in our maternity hospital, clinic, laboratory, pharmacy and children’s shelter.

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.
