About me

I was born in 1996, in a little town 40 minutes away from Cusco, called (POROY)  when I was 3 years old my father died due to alcoholism, I was then taken by American folks from Texas U.S.A  and lived with them in Cusco since. my American parents after 20 years in Peru they now have a Children’s home in the jungle area of Peru (PUERTO MALDONADO ) , So i decided to open this company to be able to help my parents with funds and sponsor kids that need help. so thats me .
