Artisans from Peru
Seeds of the Amazon
Women in Iquitos, Peru, were praying for a way to use their creative abilities to care for their families and extend the love of God to more than 25 villages along the Amazon River. Soon after, their prayers were answered by learning of the work of WorldCrafts. Seeds of the Amazon artisan group was born, and the women began handcrafting colorful bracelets. The income they earn allows them to not only provide for their families but also to freely offer their services to surrounding villages, many of which have been affected by heaving flooding from the nearby Amazon River.
