Dear Santa Rosa Fund,

I hope everybody’s well.

I’m sharing with you some news of our activities.

We are all well here apart from a few ash clouds from the San Cristobal Volcano yesterday
when there were 14 explosions, but at the moment it has stopped.

We are organising a Christmas Fair with the aim of increasing awareness of what the
Foundations does. It will be on the 15th and 16th December in the Youth Centre. We’re very
eager, we’ve been meeting and sharing ideas and all the team is working very hard on this.

In Casa Esperanza they are giving a workshop to train the women in the making of piñatas
and to improve the quality of their products. Meybol, Scarlet and Eliezer have joined the
team to acquire new tools and to support the women. It’s been a fine experience and they are
very happy learning.

On the 22nd November Zita is due to give birth and at the moment she’s in pre-natal rest. So
now I am spending more time at Casa Esperanza.

In the pharmacy we’ve introduced the sale of natural medicine in coordination with Nery and
the person in charge of natural medicines in the Teodoro Kint Hospital which makes up the
medicines offered by the pharmacy. This has given rise to a lot of interest within the

In the library many schools have attended for story-telling and handicraft workshops which
really interest the children.

During this last week the Youth Centre (Centro Recreativo) gave a presentation of a group of
children who have been attending dance classes. The parents were very grateful and pleased
with the activities and with the training that their children are receiving.

In Los Pocitos, the students who receive the scholarships [from the SRF] continue with their
studies, and soon the school year will come to an end.

I’ve included/attached some photos of the activities that we are carrying out and the logo of
the Fair that we’ve planned.

Kind Greetings. I’ll soon send another report – see below.
