We did it!

Thank you for your generous donations over the holiday season.  We were delighted that so many of you purchased chickens and trees as holiday gifts for your friends and families. Your gifts totaled 222 egg-laying hens, 351 citrus trees, a month's worth of meals for boarding students, and BEST OF ALL.... money for a new water well on campus! That's right! We made it to our $3000 goal to rebuild a new water well, with money left over to repair the septic system as well.

Silver Anniversary Celebration

I am happy to pass along a pre-announcement and invitation from David Eschenbach, who is a long time friend and volunteer of El Refugio. During the summer of 2012, El Refugio de Esperanza will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in Pucallpa, Peru, which has been supported for the past 3 years in part by the U.S. non-profit foundation, "The Refuge of Hope".
