Dear donors,

Thank you so much for your support to finance the rehabilitation of 7 burned children in Peru. This is just a little way we can say thank you! Without your help we couldn't have gotten to where we are now. In our center we receive a new burned kid every day, and until today we have been able to give integral rehabilitation to more than 4600 children from our whole country.

Today I would like to introduce a brave little boy you are supporting with your donations. His name is Deivi, he’s 5 years old and comes from a poor town in northern Peru. 

In our country it is very common for families living in poverty to cook their food in an artisanal way: assembling a small fire with stones and firewood, on the ground. Deivi was only 3 years old when he didn't realize this; approached the wood-burning stove and pulled the hot pot of soup towards him, which caused severe burns on his face, chest, shoulders and arms.

The first thing his parents did was to pour cold water on the burns - that was very good - and then they took him immediately to the health center of his community, but unfortunately due to the severity of his burns, the doctors recommended his parents to take him to a hospital in Lima, our country’s capital.

Despite the difficult economic situation the family faces, his parents did everything in their power for him to continue the treatment. They arrived at ANIQUEM two days after the accident and he has not stopped receiving treatment for a single day. While mom and little Deivi come every three weeks to receive therapies, dad works very hard every day as a worker of any construction or farm to raise money.

If you would see everything that Deivi has improved in these years, you would be as amazed as I am right now. Your face now has a special and different brightness, as you can see in the photos I am attaching to this email. This little man has received many physical and occupational therapies, psychological treatment to overcome the trauma of the accident; facing all this with courage and the unstoppable support of their parents and our great staff.

I love seeing the before and after life of our patients. It makes me think that everything we do is paid just by seeing them happy and enjoying the life that every child deserves to have.

We are happy to witness how not only the face of our patients changes, but also their families recover their joy again. So we look forward to each check-up so they can tell us how they are doing.

The love that this little one feels for his mother is so great that we choose his photo for our greeting for Mother's Day in our social networks. On behalf of him, his mother and all our patients, I want to thank you again for your help and what that means for our organization.

Thank you again for all your support. We’re really blessed to count on you!!!

Dear Donors,

Thank you so much for your support to finance the rehabilitation of 7 burned children in Peru. Our team, kids and all their families are thankful with you, for your generosity and support. Without your help we couldn’t have come this far.

In this opportunity I’d like to introduce you one of our most little angels (a.k.a patients) in ANIQUEM, her name is Yarumi and she is a warrior!

Little Yarumi was only 11 months old when an accident changed her life forever. She fell from her baby walker into a plastic bathtub full of hot water.

Thanks to your generosity Yarumi is receiving the treatments needed for an integral rehabilitation in ANIQUEM, which means physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological treatment, reinsertion into the society and special lycra garments to get better the scars in her face, torax and hands.

She and mom comes to ANIQUEM more than a year and I'm still amazed by all the difficulties that they have had overcome together in all this time, with another little lady and no help from the father. Yarumi’s mom never gave up and made everything to see her enjoying life like all the children do. And I’m so humbled to tell their story.

All of us can see her improvements in every check up; and see her running and jumping around our center hallways lights up our day. No more tears, she's truly happier thanks to you!

Today we don’t have enough words to tell you how happy we are. Your contribution is changing this little angel and mom’s life, thank you so much!

Thank you again for all your support. We’re really blessed to count on you!!!

Team ANIQUEM.

When you meet Fabricio for the first time it is very unlikely that you can never ever forget his cute and sweet big smile. He is giving big steps to overcoming a trauma caused by the accident when he pulled down the cord of a kettle and all the hot water fell over him causing burns in his little head, back, intimates parts and legs.

I love the connection he has with her mama, it just took me few minutes to realize how much they love each other and understand the beautiful bond between them. Fabricio’s mum support in therapies have been so important in the progress of his integral rehabilitation.

Months ago little Fabricio was chosen to be the image of a great campaign we launched with a company. People there just loved his cute and big smile -as all of us-, I think everyone of us that have seen it react like that doesnt it? Because he is a symbol of all our kids: their strength and the way they learn to see life again is what we love to see in our patients. We are so proud of them!

One of this company managers told me that he never thought that our kids could smile like this due the situation they are living. So I explained him that’s the goal of our work. We want all of our children have a second chance to enjoy life the same way they did it before -even better!-

But there is still a big challenge to overcome, something that can make this little one happier than he is now: Fabricio has to receive several therapies and use special garments to improve motion on his arms. We know there is a long way to go but we feel happy to count on all of you to trough this path.

He already knows that there are kind people whom are supporting his treatments. And when I told him that I wanted to make a photo to send it to all these people, he made this sign - “A kiss" he said!  

Thank you so much again for helping us to make Fabricio a happier little boy!

Besides him, there are other kids that urgently need our help. You can help us to change their lives and give them the integral rehabilitation they deserve - click on the link below to read their story. Thank you so much and have great day!

Dear donor,


Thank you so much for your support to finance the rehabilitation of 7 burned children in Peru. Our team, kids and all their families are thankful with you, for your generosity and support. Without your help we couldn’t have come this far.

Today I want to tell you about one of our kids:
I met little Luciana in a christmas party for all our kids. She was really cute and shy as well, when someone wanted to say hello, she quickly hugged her mom's leg and hid her face.

Luciana’s mom told me that she started to be like that after the accident and because her scars.Just months ago, while she was running in the house accidentally fell  into a pot of hot food that was on the floor. -Here in poor areas it is common to put the pots on the floor so they can cool down the food inside-.

Mom and dad do their best to help and support our little girl, but they have a difficult situation: Unfortunately in our country agricultors are not so well paid, and they are from a little place so far away in highlands. Even this situation they never gave up and they decided to bring her to our centre. When she has appointments comes with mom and next time comes with dad. They are always concern about all the advices and therapies they have to do when they come back home.

Lucianita is receiving the treatments needed for an integral rehabilitation in ANIQUEM, which means physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological treatment, reinsertion into the society and special lycra garments to get better the scars in her body. Of course their skin will never look like it was before but what we want to achieve is that these kids are able to live a normal life again.

Even when scars are not in face, kids know that they are gonna living all their lifes with those in their bodies and each day when they see them it’s a reminder of a traumatic day. Our mission its to convert this scars into hope and everyday we work so hard to make this possible.

Months have passed and Lucianita is now less shy and can talk to you without hiding her beautiful face in something or someone. She is a lovely girl with a sweet voice and is gaining more confidence in herself. Now when she comes to ANIQUEM sometimes stops to visit me in the office and even ask me for paint something she especially choose. She loves sitting there and sing while paints. This moment is really gold for me so I wanted to share some photos with all of you.


I'm sure you would love her if you could meet her.

Thank you again for all your support. We’re really blessed to count on you!!!

Dear friend,

Thank you so much for your support to finance the rehabilitation of 7 burned children in Peru. Our little patientes are doing their best job to receive and follow therapists indications! Here in ANIQUEM everyone is just happy to see them and bring back memories how these kids were at the beginning and how they are now. We couldn’t have come this far without you!!!

Today I would like to introduce you one of the children you are supporting. His name is Miroslav, he’s 3 years old and lives with aunties and his grandmother.

Last year, one night while his aunt was cooking he asked for bread. Unfortunately, while he enjoyed his bread, a piece fell into a pot of hot food that was on the floor. -Here in poor areas it is common to put the pots on the floor so they can cool down the food inside- Seeing his bread inside, the little boy introduces his hand into the hot pot to remove it from the inside, action that  caused severe burns on his face, right arm and hand.

At first their parents used to bring Miroslav to the center, but after a while they began to have some serious relationship issues. So his mother left him in the care of his grandmother and aunts. Despite the difficult situation facing, this little boy is doing his best with physical and occupational therapies, but still has a long way to go with the psychological ones because he must overcome many traumas by be growing up without his parents.

Miroslav is a very sweet and playful child (always jumping around there)and I am sure you would fall in love with him instantly if you would have the chance to get to know him. So to give thanks and say goodbye this little man asked me send you this photo of a turtle that he made with “so much love and all my powers” as he told me. Did I forget to mention he is a superhero?

Thank you again for all your support this year. We’re really blessed to count on you!!!

Best wishes in this new year!

He is a brave kid.

So proud of himself. He made it for you!
