5 CEM students traveled to the capital of Asuncion to participate in the charitable event “La Comilona de TELETON”, consisting of a great fair to benefit the Teleton Foundation. During the event, the CEM had a stand where they sold products produced on the CEM farm, such as tomatos, peppers, mandioca/yucca, peanuts, honey, dulce de leche, jam, etc. Additionally an exposition was mounted with Yerba Mate, where information was given about Mbaracayú Lodge, and the different tourism packages available to visit the reserve.It was very successful and many products were sold, all for the autosuficiency of CEM and prepared specifically for the Teleton. The event happens annually with thousands of people in attendance, and is an activity hosted by Foundation Teleton to finance their activities. Vendors are invited to sell their products, with a percentage benefitting the Teleton and its activities for children with neuro/muscular/skeletal disabilities.
