About Peru

Peru is a South American country bordering the Pacific Ocean. It is home to 104 People Groups, 8 of whom remain unreached according to the Joshua Project. Peru still suffers from violence perpetrated by the Shining Path, a virulent form of Maoism with roots in the illegal drug trade.

Christian Aid supports missionaries working among the Quechua people in the Peruvian highlands who struggle against the extreme climate as well as the Ashaninkas, a previously unreached People Group fearful of outsiders as a result of past oppression.
