"Victor still needs to have his foot washed", Tony says to nobody in particular.
yells Tony as he begins the prayer. Tony and most of the kids are busy praying, but 4-year old, bald- headed Reina can't contain herself. She just has to turn around and give us her famous ear-to-ear grin. And so, another typical meal at the Hogar San Francisco de Assis in Chaclacayo Peru begins. The "us" Reina is grinning at are my wife Jolley and me and some of the other volunteers who are at the Hogar giving Tony a hand. Tony is Dr. Tony Lazzara a 1960 graduate of Jesuit High in Tampa. I am much, much younger than Tony and I reminded him of that fact several times during our two week stay. One of the alumni notes mentioned an alumnus who had volunteered for Tony Lazzara and described the work he does in Peru. Jolley was looking for a good place to volunteer and did some more research about Tony and his work. At one time, 27 years ago, Tony was teaching at Emory University Medical School. He felt he needed to do something more. He went to Lima, Peru to help out at a facility for kids there. Two years later he managed to buy a large house and that was the beginning of the Hogar ("home" in Spanish). For twenty-five years Tony has been making it work. He cares for destitute kids who are in need of medical care. They live in the Hogar while he arranges their medical treatment, usually through one of the four hospitals in Lima. Tony has a permanent staff that consists of nurses, cooks, a physical therapist, two teachers, two laundresses, and two people who direct the volunteers with regard to getting the kids to Lima for treatment. The other stuff at the Hogar is done by the kids and the volunteers. As volunteers, our day usually began at the Hogar at 7:00am, which is breakfast time for the kids and Tony. (We stayed at a hotel/hostel about a twenty minute walk away.) Tony is very strict when it comes to eating. He knows that some of the maladies the kids suffer (cleft palates, club feet, etc.) resulted from malnutrition. He insists that every kid eat three meals a day. That was when all of the volunteers took a break and went with Tony to a wonderful little coffee shop a few blocks away and enjoyed some delicious coffee and pastries. And then, back to the Hogar for dinner at five o'clock for some of the kids and six o'clock for the others who had been at school. After the dinner cleanup it was play time for a little while before the volunteers and Tony ate dinner, usually at about 7:30. Our day ended then but Tony's went on for awhile longer, until all of the kids were in bed. That was pretty much the routine during the week. On Saturdays the kids clean the Hogar from top-to-bottom and Tony and Clothilde (the chief cook) go to the market in the next town to buy the next week's food. Several volunteers (including Jolley and me) accompanied them the weeks we were there. We all followed Clothilde and made the rounds of the various vendors. After an hour or two we returned with large bags full of potatoes, fruits, vegetables, along with some fish, chicken, beef and eggs. On Saturday evening most of the kids attend Mass. Tony takes the younger ones in the van and some of the volunteers accompany the others who walk or wheel the four blocks to the church. Tony Lazzara has done more good than it is possible to imagine. He definitely needs help, both financially and from volunteers. That is the purpose of this little story, to ask for your help. Maybe you can spare a few bucks or maybe you are looking for a place to where you can help out. The total operation is dependent on donations, large and small, and on volunteers. The funding is handled through the Villa La Paz foundation that Tony has set up to collect donations. Anthony Lazzara, M.D., Medical Director

Dr. Anthony (Tony) Lazzara, an American from Tampa, Fla., was a religious man, a pediatrician and a professor at Emory University.
Traveling in Peru, Dr. Lazzara met a Franciscan monk who owned a house and dispensed medications to local children in need. In 1984, Dr. Lazzara bought the house, gave up his Tampa life and started the orphanage. Dr. Lazzara is 71. He is looking for a replacement. Dr. Lazzara tried to convince the local doctor to write the letter. The doctor would not write the note. He did not want to admit to the government his operation on a 4-year-old failed.
