"Adopt a Child" is a program aimed to support Andean children in need. One part of the program is to brighten up those children´s Christmas by helping their families to fulfil their wishes. Those children´s wish-lists include all the common things that any child would like to be given.
This year, we along with our generous donors were able to bring Christmas gifts, school supplies and clothes to children at the remote community of Cochayoc.
However, we intend to provide support to children any time of the year!
