SO MANY MILES TO WANDER

The next trip – Peru

And it’s already in less than a month that I will be heading to Peru, South America, a continent that I am quite fond with it. A whole month divided into two parts, volunteer work and tourism.

It has passed two years since I did one week of volunteer work at Kenya, mainly at the orphanage Wajibu Wetu. One week it was such a short period of time, that I decided that I had to do more, I decided to do a fundraising. There was not already a lot of time to do it, so I wrote an email explaining what I was doing and some of the needs that an orphanage in Kenya has. The email was sent to everyone that I could remember. I raised almost 1 500 euros! And besides that I took my 60 liter backpack quite full and heavy (in the limit) with notebooks, pens, pencils and others, offered by the company where I work; and t-shirts, pencils and monetary funds, offered by Tagus (Travel Agency).

The money raised was spent in big bags of flour, sugar, rice, some small gifts for the children and more for the children at Wajibu Wetu, the smile on their faces was amazing. The rest of the money was spent in bed linen, uniforms and others for Limuru Children’s Centre (LCC). I made a difference and as Aesop said: “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”

And I want to make the difference again, now in Peru, improving the quality of life and give the children a possibility of a better future. I will be fundraising for Planeterra’s Cuzco Kids Project. A project that provides a drop-in centre for vulnerable street youth that left their homes due to abuse, neglect or abandonment.

You can find more info in the site bellow and also be free to donate for Planeterra’s Cuzco Kids Project.
