Etén City, Peru

360 children

Pastor José Chumacero Córdova is changing Etén City as he serves the children in Jesus’ name. This church oversees a Compassion child development program and is looking to partner with a church in the U.S.


  • Compassion-sponsored children receive regular health check-ups, nutritional assistance, and educational support.
  • Other activities at this center include: field trips, health education, picnics, sports tournaments, handcrafting, baking workshops, and youth camps.
  • This church hosts a Compassion Child Survival Program that provides aid to mothers and infant children.
