Peru is reported to be the third most vulnerable country to climate change. In light of this, Tearfund’s partner, Paz y Esperanza (Peace and Hope) was joined by Vida Abundante (Abundant Life) led by Tearfund Inspired Individual Pilar Vicentelo, alongside other organisations to form Renew Our World (ROW) Peru.

They focused on raising awareness of Christian theology about environmental responsibilities in churches throughout Peru.
