SOME ACHIVEMENTS OF OUR KIDS
We celebrated our children’s birthdays, for some of them it was the first time to have a birthday cake, a party and new toys, you can imagine their faces, some were surprised some even show tears. We feel very bless to be part of their lives, and you are part of this too.
Our doors were open this year to received kids with special needs; various health conditions; allergies, ADD and other. They received special care, medication and they visit specialized doctors. All of those services and medications were paid with the donation of the Club of Uncles/Aunts and other donation; some doctor gave their services without charge, some were paid with the donations we received from our donors.
SUMMER IS HERE!!
The school semester is over, and we begin the summer! …but before…
This past semester was with a lot of challenges for our kids, because some of them required a lot of help, because they did not know how to read and/or write, some were lost in their grades. Our Tutors worked with them everyday…now: we have two trophies, two medals and a lot of good grades and, of course, a lot of happy faces because they experience that, even it were a very hard work, it was worth it, a great achievements from our children. We feel very happy for them and we give a STANDING OVATION FOR THEM!
Thank you: Iris and Marilyn our Tutors that are sponsor by the Banco Popular Foundation and Wanda and Stephanie that are from the Homeless Program, you all are helping me, thank you for pushing me to study and get good grades, to teach me how to read. I always remember when you told me that I was very smart, very important and “you can” are words that will be with me always.
We start the first of June in a summer camp in Boys and Girls Club. It will be very special to our oldest kids. They will have sports, new friends, visit museum and other interesting places, besides they will learn values and much more. We feel very bless that we can give them this opportunity because they will attend free of charge, THANK YOU Boys and Girls Club.
In July we are planning on having a summer camp in the Home with visits to various places, pools, the Zoo, Children’s Museum and others.
They will receive some tutoring to make sure that they will be ready went the school semester begin. At the Home they learn how to use the computer with educational games, adequate for their age.
On this time of the year, summer, we will receive various visits; they play with them and show them how to play basketball, volleyball, and other sports, some bring clothes and other things for the children. We feel very GRATEFULL for all your time and demonstration of love…TO ALL OF YOU, OUR FRIENDS THAT LOVE THE CHILDREN OF REGAZO DE PAZ.
2015…going to 2016…
We are in the expectation of this year, with the changes in the distribution of the funds from some of our sponsor and/or the government, the redistribution of the funds will affect us, as other organizations. The donations we received goes to provide: clothes, for their basic needs, food, access to specialized medical services, therapy, transportation to school and other appointments, and others. But we feel hopeful because of the hearts of those persons that love our children. We continue looking forward to do everything they may need and work for our kids and the kids that we will receive in the future.
→ This past months we were working with the vehicles of the Home, because they need to be replace. We have a used van and it is not as big as we need to move all the kids at once; and now it is having a lot of mechanical problems. We need a van to transport the kids to the school, medical appointments, therapy, recreational activities and others. We are hoping that you may help us get a new van; our kids need to be move to many places and we want to provide for them everything they need.
We estimate the cost in $20,000 to get, probably a used one, but in good conditions.
