In 2011 Reel Life International organized a team of volunteers to travel to Peru and spend a week at The Puerto Alegria Boy’s Home. Located deep in the Amazon rainforest about an hour up the Itaya River from Iquitos, the orphanage houses around 40 boys between the ages of 5 and 16. During the week, we were able to assist them by finishing out several thatched roof huts which provided additional housing. Participants in Peru were also able to spend a good bit of time building meaningful relationships with the boys by swimming, hiking, fishing, and playing games. We also were able to provide 10 rod and reel combos to The Puerto Alegria orphanage which were donated by Zebco and Vicious Fishing.
