Dr. Sharon Forrest ND, PhD. In 1990 Dr. Sharon Forrest went to Peru's Sacred Valley for the 1st time and fell in love with the indigenous children whom she met on the streets, most living in extreme poverty. She became their much-loved "Mama Sharon". In 2000 Dr. Sharon established a NGO, nonprofit to provide a means for others to contribute to the well being of children similar to those she had supported for years in Peru's. She declared, "I decided to start both POTH and CHDS because I realized that I could no longer do it all alone. Countless more children desperately need sponsorship." Mama Sharon has helped scores of children and adults change their lives forever.
Two of her numerous "adopted" Peruvian children were Washington, whom she met when he was a child of nine and Carlos a child of twelve. Her support of Washi and Carlos inspired them to give back to the people of their community. In 2008 she co-founded Casa Hogar Del Sol/Paskay with Carlos.
