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

The US singer gave a concert on 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 aged two to 13 who have been victims of sexual violence.

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

Lady Gaga met 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.
