After a year full of surprises, Wasi Esperanza had its last activities on December 22nd. Wasi Esperanza has achieved a lot this last year with the children who received therapy, so we held a party for all the children, siblings, parents and so on, to finish the year on a high note and to celebrate the achievements.

One child that stood out this year was Doris; she lives in an orphanage and has the diagnosis of hyperactivity and attention deficit. She truly made a big improvement this year: by the end of the year, she was able to pay attention for at least two minutes (whereas it was 10 seconds before). She came to the party in a beautiful blue dress and enjoyed the clown a lot. She even was able to pay attention to all of the indications he was giving. To be able to witness progress like the one we see in Doris truly makes Wasi Esperanza proud.

 The final part of the part brought the most joy to all the children: Santa Claus entered the room with a bag full of presents for all of the children. One smile especially caught the attention of the people of Wasi Esperanza. It was José; a boy of 10 years of age, who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and sensibility problems. Since he started therapy at just three years of age, a lot of improvement has been made: he can now express his emotions, sit without help and is less afraid of heights. Seeing him smile at Santa when receiving his Christmas present, gave the Wasi Esperanza team an incredible amount of joy. José’s mother was so excited to see this that she cried when she saw this sign of her son’s improvements. 

The Christmas party was a great success for all the children; they received their presents, drank hot chocolate and ate panettone (a traditional Peruvian cake). We ended the party with a goodbye after which we waited for the arrival of the next year.

 The next year came, January passed and then it was time for February. This means: Carnavales! This is celebrated in a very traditional way in Ayacucho, Peru. We went out into the streets of Ayacucho to sing about the work Wasi Esperanza does, and also that children with disabilities should be treated equally by society.

So far, that is all we have for you right now. But much more to come, friends of Global Giving! We will be sharing more about the progress we are making and all of the positive results we see in our children.

See you all a next time!

                                  OCTUBRE: MES DE LAS PERSONAS CON DISCAPACIDAD

 

Si bien todavía esperamos cerrar el año y lograr el objetivo de recolectar donaciones a través de la página, nos sentimos aún más animados que nunca porque sabemos que todos los días brindamos más sonrisas a nuestros niños que reciben rehabilitación y ayudan a sus padres, ofreciendo les da más fuerza para continuar y fomentar el cuidado de sus hijos.

El pasado mes de octubre fue el Mes Nacional de las Personas con Discapacidady nosotros de la Asociación Wasi Esperanza con nuestros niños y sus padres participaron activamente en las celebraciones que se llevaron a cabo en diferentes áreas de nuestra ciudad, Ayacucho (Perú). Nuestro entusiasmo nos llevó a realizar actividades de sensibilización y la actividad más destacada fue el desfile en el plaza principal de la ciudad. Alrededor de 30 padres con sus hijos participaron en el desfile portando pancartas con frases de concientización sobre la igualdad y el respeto por los derechos de las personas con discapacidad. El objetivo principal de este desfile fue hacer que todos comprendieran que las personas con discapacidad no deberían ser consideradas como un objeto de el rechazo y sus derechos deben ser respetados como los de cualquier otra persona. Este propósito es muy ambicioso en un país como Perú, donde, en general, 

Esta actividad finalizó con un baile simbólico en el que participaron 4 niños del Centro de Día Wasi Esperanza con 4 trabajadores de la asociación. La canción elegida para la presentación fue "Color Esperanza", autor Diego Torres, que fue muy emotivo para todos los participantes. Esto representa un resumen de lo que estamos haciendo todos los días, esforzándonos por brindar una atención de calidad a nuestros hijos para que puedan ser independientes en la sociedad.

Pocos días faltan para el final de este año y estamos planeando una fiesta final en la que daremos regalos, chocolate y pan dulce a cada uno de nuestros niños. Este fue un año de trabajo constante y queremos continuar trabajando arduamente en 2018 para que todos los niños de Wasi Esperanza puedan lograr sus objetivos.

Y deseando a la familia GlobalGiving una Feliz Navidad y un Feliz Año Nuevo, esos son los deseos más sinceros de la Asociación Wasi Esperanza.

Dear Wasi Friends,

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.

Thank you! The Wasi Esperanza team.
