I’m reblogging a post written by my friend Cindy, who also lives here in Boquete. If any of my readers are interested in donating anything to this little organization please contact me personally and I will give you an address to send things to. I just love those sweet little faces and would like to help as well. Thanks…Holly
This morning I went to the Volcancito Mission with my friend and head knitter in Boquete. She was delivering over 100 knitted articles, from blankets to booties. She organized a group to do this, which originally was made up of expats. Now it includes Panamanian and indigenous women – learning a skill and building their self-esteem.
This group does not get a lot of attention in the community. Their fundraising has been limited. But the ‘jefa’ of the group, Brandy, is about to change that. I went to the mission with her today to take pictures of the children who get the caps, sweaters and blankets her group knits. The children (or their moms) were waiting to be seen by a doctor. The kids were absolutely adorable. When a sweater was brought to them to try on, their eyes just lit up.
