Our volunteers at Patrocina un Libro celebrated Children’s Day 2009 at the “Arena Santa Lucia” in Monterrey, Mexico. This year Children’s Day came a little later than usual due to the swine flu scare, but thankfully by June 13 everything was back to normal and we were able to organize a special event for patients in the children’s wing of the Metropolitan Hospital as well as children from local orphanages.
Our event began at 12:00 p.m. and finished at 5:30 p.m. In those hours, 40 volunteers from Patricino un Libro and other organizations were able to provide the following:
We want to thank Activated Ministries for their generous sponsorship of 1,300 beautifully illustrated Christian books which instill the values, courage and faith that these children need to persevere despite their grim circumstances. Thank you for helping us to make a difference in their lives.
