Lady Gaga spends Thanksgiving with Peruvian sex-abuse victims

Published November 23, 2012


Singer Lady Gaga spent Thanksgiving Day with Peruvian girls who have been sexually abused and currently live at a shelter in the poor Lima neighborhood of Lurin.

The U.S. singer gave a concert Friday in the Peruvian capital on her tour of South America, but the evening before went to the Infant Jesus of Prague home.

The institution provides shelter for 45 girls ages 2 to 13 that have been victims of sexual violence.

The singer showed up with her makeup artist, wearing a green wig and dressed for comfort in a flowing orange blouse and long black skirt.

As her security guards kept reporters well away, Lady Gaga met with the children at the home, shared their afternoon snack and entertained them with a few songs, according to local media.

On her "Born This Way Ball" tour, the American singer had already engaged in other charitable activities before her concerts, as in Brazil where she visited destitute kids from a slum. EFE
