The program "Adopt a Family" is focused on help to poor families living at remote sites of the Andes. In the program, there are included not only complete families, but also lonely widows or elderly people to whom we would like to relieve from their bad deals. “Adopt a Family” is about donating basic products such as warm winter clothes, nappies, bedding and medicines, etc.
During the Christmas time, we usually try to bring them brighter holidays. For that reason, we along with our generous donors were able to provide Christmas gifts and sweets to native families this year.
However, we are aware of that not only gifts under the Christmas tree are necessary. So that, we support families also after holidays and basically, all year round.

They would very appreciate toys too since those families usually cannot afford them.
