Care for Life





Today was a celebration day in Casa Banana (one of the communities Care for Life works with). They completed some of their goals so today they received their prizes. The people celebrated with dancing. The dancing was awesome! The people received cement and roofing to make their little houses better. The really diligent people who completed more goals got chairs and a couple even got skinny versions of what we could consider a mattress. It kills me to see the conditions these people live in. We are so lucky to have a house to live in and food in our stomach.

Wow, I dont even know what to say. That is so humbling. The picture of the little boy is so cute. I'm glad there are programs out there trying to make a difference.

Wow, Andrea. Every time I read your blog it gives me a reality check on how luck and blessed I am. Thank you for sharing your experiences with all of us.

Andrea,
I love reading the blog. It gives me a bit more perspective than I'm used to. I do have a question about your most recent post. What kind of goals did the people meet to earn their prizes?
One more thing: I think you'd better learn the dance from the people in Casa Banana so you can show all of us when you get back!

Wow, what a way to put things in perspective. Thank you so much for sharing. Not only that to help us have a reality check on our own with the pictures that you have shown us. I respect those that help those communities that are in need of help. I can't wait to be doing the same thing.

love,
Veronica
