Operación San Andrés (OSA) is a faith-based, non-governmental organization dedicated to transforming the community of Collique, Peru, through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that all people are beloved of God and therefore entitled to respect and care. Operación San Andrés was formed to care for those in need in Collique, responding to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people in the community.
Operación San Andrés improves the lives of people experiencing the demoralizing effects of poverty. Twice-yearly mission trips have provided medical, dental, and eye care to thousands of adults and children. Ongoing educational enrichment programs provide supplemental learning and healthy lunches for school-age children. We also support Collique's women with programs teaching responses to, and awareness and prevention of domestic violence. We also provide job skills training that enhances women’s lives, mental health, and self-esteem.
