Our project is still active on the Global Giving Site and we hope to get all the needed funds to provide again the best services for our children next year. But we would like to already Thank you for the great affords that has been made!
Here we give you a little inside of the activities that we were able to realize because of your help. In August this year we organized a parent’s workshop about their physically disabled child’s rights. A topic very difficult to understand and make value because off the parent’s ignorance and low self-esteem. So a group of 25 parents came and we started with dynamics and group plays so the parents get to know each other better, get motivated to tell their experiences and histories. As the session starts with laughs and loud voices during the games, the group gets more serious and often tears are presents when parents tell their story. It is good to release all the negative tensions to end in a big group hug and feel relieved to not be alone.
Those activities are really important to build a good parent child relation as are the other activities we had the previous months like a ‘paseo’ (a daytrip) with all parents and children. A group of 60 people enjoyed plays, volleyball games, swimming in the river and good food (always very important in Peru ;) ). Afterwards we often get big smiles and nice messages from parents and other volunteers on our facebook page:
Hello!! I am Paola. I was in Ayacucho with the ONG IBO Italia volunteering at the “Juan Andrés Vivanco Amorìn” Puericultorio. I brought at your center during my two week three kids and I had the chance to come to "a paseo" with all of you. I was a wonderful experience and I had the chance to see your impressive and important work that I kept in my heart.
We are still planning a lot of activities to come this year, the national day of persons with a disability is to come in October and of course the end of the year parties cannot be forgotten!
If you are in the neighborhood, come and visit the center and get to know our fantastic children in therapy. Otherwise we’ll keep in touch by email, Facebook or the Global Giving page.
