The Orphanage Visit

 

The day that Joanna, Lisa , Jillian and I went to watch the sunset  from the church high above San Cristobel ,two gentlemen approached us asking for donations for his orphanage/school OINACHAC Organizado de indigenas de los altos de Chiapas A C .

It was certainly serendipity , as the ladies were wondering how to distribute the many clothes, toys, foods  and many other things that were  donated from many different sources, even from out of the country.And here was the solution on the top of a hill , in front of a church , watching the sun set.

Joanna and Lisa made the arrangements of when and how to make contact with the gentlemen , setting a time and date when the distribution would take place .

Today after breakfast the goodies were taken out of the suitcases and sorted into different piles… one for boys , one for girls etc , small toys packed into little bags so that all the children got their own special treat… Again one for the boys and one for the girls

Once all sorted and ready the ‘stuff’ was piled into various taxis along with some of the group who had wished to join us.

Of course there was an excited  welcome as we arrived like Santa Clauses with lots of goodies and grateful recipients .

It was a fruitful and rewarding experience and of course there are always the ones that you want to bring home with you .
