Sponsor a Book program visits Lima Hospitals for Christmas

Maria & Jacek Zychowicz

On December 21 and 23, 2011, we had the most wonderful experience of this year's humanitarian projects in Lima. Every year we organize “Sponsor a Book” program; distributing character building materials books in the poverty stricken areas of Lima. This year while planning the program we were thinking of who would appreciate those great books the most and so we decided to give them to hospitalized children.

Just a week before Christmas 2009, our volunteers visited the Port Isabel Housing Community Center for the underprivileged. The children at this facility participate inthe yearly toy drive for the orphans of Mexico, giving what little toys they have. In return for their unselfish giving, Activated Ministries sponsored 47 Christmas storybooks with accompanying audio CD’s to these needy children.
