More than 100,000 people participated April 15 in the Parade for Life and Family, according to the event’s organizers. The event is put on by the Regional Coordinator for Life (CORVIDA) in the city of Arequipa, Peru.
“For the most valuable thing we have: life and family; we give our all!” was the theme of this new edition of the parade that has been held since 2006 on the date closest to the Day of the Unborn Child, which In Peru is celebrated March 25, the feast of the Annunciation.
Guadalupe Valdez, president of CORVIDA, stressed in a statement that the parade “is not against anyone” but is “a celebration that seeks to affirm, promote, and protect the value of every person and every human life.”
“The crises that we have gone through in recent years have shown us that the institution in which we find the greatest support in times of difficulty is the family,” she noted.
