The Mojandita Health Center opened on July 26, 1997, near Otavalo, Ecuador. The subsequent growth in its services has been due in large part to the efforts of Casa Mojanda’s generous supporters and volunteers working side by side with community health promoters and the community health board.

CPLogoNbgEChildren of Peace International, Vietnam

Children of Peace International (COPI) was founded in 1993. Our primary objective was to provide aid to state-operated orphanages in all of Vietnam. We began giving support at Tam Binh Orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City with Sister Hai and Sister Tan’s children. This orphanage is also known as Good Shepherd Orphanage after the namesake of our very first sponsor, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Sandy, Utah.

Since that time, we have expanded our mission to support children in Phu Tho Province in 1994, Ho Chi Minh City in 1993, Khanh Hoa in 1996, Hoa Binh in 1996, Binh Duong in 2002, Quang Ninh in 2002, Kim Doi, Hue in 2003, Phu Yen in 2004 and Vinh Long in 2007. Currently, COPI continues to provide support in each of these provinces.

Once the children in each of the COPI supported orphanages became steady and stable, we began to notice our hard working, poor neighbors. Many of our neighbors’ children have to work to help feed their families and cannot afford the fees for attending school. Since 2004, we have been offering scholarships to several hundred small scholars each year and have built several schools for all levels.

  1. Jill Sussman just emailed me information about your trip earlier today. I loved your pictures and enjoyed reading your blog. This information will be in the next temple newsletter, so the whole congregation will soon know about your trip to Eduador and Peru. I’m glad that your family will be experiencing the trip together. It’s wonderful that you’ll be able to bring needed healthcare to people in the Southern Hemisphere. Thanks for sharing your information with us. Marion Kay(TBS Member) I was Gail’s patient in March.
