Hogar San Lucas: 30 years caring for older adults in situations of abandonment

In commemoration of its thirtieth anniversary, the members of the Hogar San Lucas in Callao (Peru), a space dedicated to the care of older adults in situations of abandonment, together with their caregivers and our brothers F. Christian Yamanija and Renzo Paccini, expressed their deep gratitude to God with an emotional Eucharist.

Everyday life in San Lucas

fter breakfast, activities fill the day with diverse entertainment: some tune in to television shows, others immerse themselves in solving crossword puzzles, while some dedicate themselves to painting. These days, Clarita and Haydee have dedicated themselves to weaving, as Anita Venegas, Home Coordinator, shared.

The San Lucas Home, located in Callao, is a space in which Solidarity on the Move Perú (SEM) fully assists and accompanies older adults in a complete state of abandonment, offering them decent living conditions.
