Distribution of goods in the wider community in the Andes

 Following our 2015 Christmas appeal, donations received in Lima, and the arrival of our cargo from the UK, we were able to travel to the Ayacucho area in March 2016 and to distribute gifts, food and clothing to children and families in a remote part of the Andes.

Back to school 2016

Peru being in the southern hemisphere the school year starts after the Summer holidays, in March. So, after the long Summer break it's back to school for everyone, once the school uniforms for the kindergarden, primary and secondary level, and all the school materials, have been bought and sorted, and the registration payments have been made.

All this is always a big expense for us every year and we are extremely grateful to those who have given us donations to make this possible, especially all those who were involved in our Christmas cake campaign in 2015 which, as previously, we have dedicated to fundraising for this purpose. Do help us to do this again later this year!
