Christmas Celebration with 200 Guests
200 residents from rural, poor areas were able to experience an unforgettable day at the weekend Christmas party in Abdón Calderón, Ecuador.
A colorful program for the whole family and a gift for everyone - for some the only one in the whole year.
Abdón Calderón is located in the Manabí region and was hit by an earthquake in April 2016. Our team from Guayaquil provided humanitarian aid in this region, which later led to long-term work. Since December 2016, we have been offering regular creative workshops for children aged 5-15 and counselling for parents in this earthquake-hit region around Abdón Calderón. For the children from this region, the workshops are the only ray of hope in their daily lives marked by poverty.
