Angeles is a sweet little girl in Peru. She was abandoned by her father when she learned that his daughter was born with hip dysplasia that affected both legs. She had a surgery last year and she is recovering very well. She lives with her mom, step-father, and her half-brother. She likes drawing in her free time.

Peru is a culturally diverse country in South America. The majority of the population profess to be Christian, with the majority being Roman Catholic. Terrorism and social violence can be common in certain areas. Generally speaking, there is a lack of stable jobs and it is often difficult to find consistent work. Many fathers abandon their families, leaving them in challenging circumstances. Alcoholism, drug use, and gang violence are also prevalent in many communities.
