in a Desert of Poverty and Despair
A modern maternity hospital where more than 96,000 babies have been safely born.

“The people of Chimbote, Peru, know well that one of the most important charitable works of mercy in our community is, without any doubt, the Centre for Social Works, ‘Maternidad de Maria.’
The deep respect of the people of Chimbote for ‘La Maternidad’ has been earned over time as a result of the quality of the services provided, and the obvious and unlimited charity that, for 24 hours of the day, keeps the doors open. The Centre is a widely respected Catholic healthcare complex that includes a maternity hospital, wellness clinic, laboratory, pharmacy, orphanage and home visit program serving the poorest of the poor in my diocese.”
