Mission Trip to Peru

by Serena Santoro | May 04, 2017

Dear Mr. Longley & Rainbow Sandals

"We have just returned from the annual mission trip to Piura, Peru with 50 students from JSerra Catholic High School. This year was particularly difficult time for the people of Piura due to a month of torrential rains prior to our arrival. Many of the homes were devastated where people lost all their belongings. With this, your generous donations couldn't have come at a better time.

Part of our mission was to rebuild homes, teach at the local schools, work at the orphanage and distribute donated items. As we distributed the Rainbow® Sandals, it was extraordinary to see the joy that these shoes brought the people. In addition, the people of Las Polverina village had been praying for a much needed church and their prayers were answered. With your generous monetary donation, a church was built by the JSerra students and dedicated to Rainbow® Sandals. In that same village, the students distributed many of the Rainbow® Sandals.

The students of JSerra and I thank you so much for your generosity."
