Canastas de Navidad (Christmas baskets)
It is traditional in Peru for employers to give their employees Christmas baskets (a bit like Christmas hampers). We are in contact with a number of needy unemployed folk who struggle to put food on the table and for whom Christmas will not be a time of great feasting.
La Fuente clinic and also El Puente church have been making and distributing canastas to folk in the community who really need extra food, for them this has been an unexpected special Christmas gift!
