Together, they have well surpassed their goal of $1,000 for the Christmas in Huaycan fund. In November, LLI volunteers got together and decided to take their own initiative: they wanted to give a Christmas to remember to the kids and families of LLI. The result was an out pour of support from their family and friends, donating a few bucks to several hundred dollars to support this cause.
After a chocolatada (Peruvian Christmas party for kids... paneton and hot chocolate is served!), all of LLI's students received a gift, with most getting new shoes, t-shirts, chess boards, musical instruments and MORE. Families received gift baskets filled with nutritious goodies for holiday meals. On behalf of LLI's kids and families, thank you LLI volunteers and supporters! Please enjoy the photos!
Thanks again to LLI's August - December Volunteer team. To all who have participated, whether it be for a few weeks to several months, your work and dedication is appreciated and has made an impact in Huaycan. THANK YOU.
