Winter came on June 21st and brought the cold and the drizzles. We had to suspend the trips with the girls to the parks and the beach. Luckily, we have very cozy spaces in our venue, because La Casa de Panchita is located in a very nice old house.
Now La Casa de Panchita carries out alternative activities, in addition to empowerment workshops, which continue as usual. We have shown animated films, such as "Coco", that the girls loved (many of them never went to the movies). Obviously, there was no shortage of popcorn.
Several adult workers are participating in guitar workshops, offered by one of our volunteers, which give a touch of joy to the gray winter Sundays of Lima.
We all strive so that our special space protects us, shelters us, gives us joys on Sundays and helps us forget the problems of the week. Much work, abuse and loneliness, due to the absence of the family and the distance from our place of origin.
How do we do it? Partly thanks to your continued support; partly thanks to workers like Ophelia, who for years has received those who come to our venue, or like Blanca Y, who prepares delicious lunches; partly thanks to an amazing team of volunteers. We add all these parts, however small they may be, and our warm space is created: La Casa de Panchita.
