St. Martin was born in 1579 in Lima (Peru) and entered the Dominican Order at the age of fifteen. There, he worked as a barber, farm laborer, infirmaries and almoner. He also cared for the sick and poor and even established a hospital at his sister's house. The difference between the other hospital was, that in this hospital, people of different skin-color were not separated. St. Martin de Porres was always in touch with Rose of Lima. He died in 1639 of typhus.
