Harvest for the elderly
I hope all is well with you. From Monday 3rd until the end of Friday 7th April, GlobalGiving will be matching the first $50 of all individual donations to this page by 50% which is a fantastic opportunity for the projects, the children and members of the communities where we work. Thank you so much in advance for anything you can donate this week helping us continue our work in Latin America with the additional bonus of the matching!
You may have seen mention in the past of the week-long Charity Challenges that Fly The Phoenix undertake each year to raise funds for the projects and have thought about getting involved. This year we will be taking on the Lost City Charity Challenge in Colombia in May and the Inca Trail in Perú in July and it would be great to have you on the team if you are interested. For information on the challenges please follow the link below.
This year we really want to try and help the elderly more with regular food parcels depending on funding. We will also be putting in more vegetable gardens which not only feed the children though the harvest is then distributed with the local families with special attention given to the elderly. As Plan Moo is directed to individual families, the elderly will benefit with daily milk and extra products and medicines they can buy with the proceeds from the sales of milk.
As is custom, Pawkar Raymi was recently celebrated, asking Pachamama (Mother Earth) for a good harvest, made more pertinent this year with the current abnormal climate. We have several community events coming up over the coming months which the elderly are always invited to. There is always a good meal and plenty dance and games for them to get involved with and feel part of the wider community.
Have a great April and if you can donate to this page this week to receive the 50% matching on the first $50 it would be fantastic and thank you in advance. Also if you are interested in getting involved in the charity challenges, please do get in touch through the link below.
