Safety of our volunteers is of the upmost importance. Peru is a low-income, developing country, therefore some violence exists in the city of Trujillo, but it is easy to avoid with proper due-diligence. Theft is the main worry, and we urge volunteers to constantly keep track of their belongings, not carry too much cash at one time, not pay with credit or debit card, and to be constantly aware of their surroundings. We take safe, secure buses in our travels between cities as to avoid any security problems. We prearrange all of the transportation to and from volunteering and to and from HOP activities. We urge volunteers to travel in groups when exploring in the city. The host families are trustworthy, middle class Peruvians who have great security measures on their homes and who truly care about the volunteers.
