Welcome to Jasiel


One of our Ministry Partners is Jasiel. Jasiel is a ministry to people with disabilities based in Callao, Peru. Jasiel currently meets on Saturdays at the Christian Missionary Alliance church in Callao. The day starts with simple games that all can participate in, worship time, teaching time and lunch. For many in this program, this is the only time that there is social interaction outside the house and a nutritious meal. The mothers meet separately for part of the day to have Bible study and social time. Jasiel is run entirely by volunteers and is overseen by Marisela Solis. WBI supports Jasiel by supplying the funds for meals and materials needed for this ministry. WBI is partnering with Jasiel to expand the ministry to Ventanilla and Pachacutec, two cities north of Lima. As the ministry grows, we hope to expand to a full time Day-Program. Currently in Lima, as in much of South America, there is no safety net for families that have a member with a disability. There is no government support. We hope to open the first Day-Program for People with Disabilities in Lima. Stay tuned!
