Santo Domingo's Children Seek Help
Santo Domingo barrio in Medellin, Colombia.
I am currently seeking donations to help feed families in one of Medellin, Colombia's poorest neighborhoods known as Santo Domingo.
The name of the organization I am working with in Medellin is called "Corporacion Tu Cuentas." The group raises money by selling cookies and baked goods throughout Medellin to help families in need.
We plan on purchasing food at a local supermarket early morning on Thursday June 25, 2009. Afterwards, we will be driving up to Santo Domingo with a van loaded with groceries and supplies.
We are also planning on helping a family with four small children who recently lost their home along with all their personal belongings in a fire.
There are many poor families in Santo Domingo who would greatly appreciate any and all donation no matter how small.
I will be posting pictures after the event on Thursday to demonstrate that we all can make a difference in people lives.
Thanks in advance for your donations and support.
THANKS TO ALL WHO DONATED FOR A GREAT CAUSE!!!
I am preparing a slide show of photos from the days events to demonstrate how much the people of Santo Domingo's Barrio Pinar appreciated the kindness of strangers....
