Let’s be Heroes Foundation is an organization whose mission is to convert love into action by promoting values, solidarity and volunteer work around the world; training people willing to get involved in humanitarian actions and connecting people, organizations and social projects. Their objective is to inspire more and more people to “become heroes”, in other words, people that put their talents at the service of others to create equitable societies with solid values.
The founder, Eduardo Verástegui, is the producer of the film Little Boy, a movie recently played at Camp Hope and which message deeply touched its residents. Inspired by Little Boy and by the video message that Mr. Verástegui sent to them, the children and youth decided to join the Let’s be Heroes movement. They formed groups to undertake positive actions looking to improve their environment.
One of the groups asked for support to visit an orphanage so they could play and bring happiness to other vulnerable children. Our volunteers Lya, Pedro and Matt, took the 4 girls and 2 boys to an orphanage in Thaiba that is supported by “Operation Nepali Child”, a UK registered charity which supports two orphanages in the Kathmandu valley. Matt, one of our volunteers at Camp Hope is a trustee with this organization, and through him we hope to establish a regular connection with the children from Camp Hope and the orphanages.
