Heart-Links supported 8 projects in 2021. Financed by Heart-Links donors and run by our partner organizations in Peru, these projects helped people in the urban centre of José Leonardo Ortiz, across Lambayeque and Cajamarca provinces, and in communities up and down the Zaña Valley.

145 individuals and organizations in Canada donated just over $109,000 to Heart-Links to make this work possible. When Trish Gergich, chair of Heart-Links’ board of directors, spoke at our annual general meeting, she reflected on the many creative ways our partners addressed the challenges caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and how to best help their communities.

She also remarked on the passion our donors have shown in their unwavering commitment to our partners and the communities they work with in northern Peru. “You are also at the heart of our work,” she said. “Thank you.”

Who did your donations help? What impact did you make? Who else is part of the Heart-Links community?

Our 2021 Impact Report will answer many of these questions. And we’d be happy to answer any others you may have. You can reach us at info@heart-links.org or by telephone at 226-884-2845.

The achievements of 2021 inspire us to carry on. We will continue to work in solidarity—with you and with our partners in Peru—to create a more just and equitable world.
