Heartbeats of Hope—a crisis pregnancy center—formed out of a partnership of seven churches in Pucallpa, Peru. We exist to evangelize and counsel women who are facing crisis pregnancies. We aim to prevent abortion and offer a new life of hope found only in a relationship with Jesus Christ. The center provides women with accurate information about their choices, promotes purity among youth, and counsels women who are post-abortive.
Heartbeats of Hope is the 7th crisis pregnancy center in the entire country of Peru (population 30,000,000) and the first in the jungle region. With proper volunteer training, strategic promotion, instructional resources for clients and some basic necessities for young mothers, we can help to literally save lives and impact young families as we care for them in the love, grace and mercy of Jesus Christ.
Although illegal, abortions are frequent procedures. More than 1,000 abortions are performed each day in Peru, often at the risk of the mothers’ lives. Promiscuity and teen pregnancy are common, and STD’s are on the rise in Pucallpa. There are many single-mother homes and most of these women live in poverty from an incomplete education. Many women find themselves in unhealthy, abusive relationships but are too scared to seek help.
