St Andrew's Evangelical Mission was set up nearly 30 years ago by Rev Brian Atwell a single-minded Scot who dedicated the best part of his life to saving abandoned children in Peru.
With his Peruvian wife Betty and their two children, he took a one-way ticket to Lima, set up a soup kitchen in the slums and eventually raised enough cash to establish an orphanage.
Over almost 30 years they have given hope to hundreds of youngsters and transformed the lives of the scores they took in to the orphanage in the hills above the capital.
While he faced a constant financial struggle to fund the facility, he also battled ill health, suffering hepatitis, dysentery and angina, as well as undergoing heart bypass and pacemaker operations.
He once acknowledged: “It would be much easier just to build a church and do normal missionary work, trying to win converts. Instead this is a 24-hour-a-day job.”
But he knew the children depended on the orphanage and believed that without it they would either be dead or living like animals on the street. He saw his work as a form of practical Christianity, saying: “I’m in it now and can’t back out.”
Sadly Brian died in 2010 but Betty is continuing and they are currently looking after over 30 children. They recieve no government funding and are solely dependent on charitable donations.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
