Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season from all the students, volunteers and staff of Helping Hands.  Thanks to our very generous Betterplace donors, we are looking forward to a fun Christmas party on Dec. 17th with Christmas bread donated by our local La Paz Community Church and hot chocolate and children’s gifts donated by our Betterplace donors.  Watch for our pictures of the Christmas party coming up!!

And thanks to the wonderful generosity of our supporters from England, the US and Europe, Pedro had a very successful operation and is now wearing his new special soft contact lenses.   There was even enough money left to buy a large bottle of contact lenses liquid.  

We invite you to check out our pictures of the food baskets for four of our families at risk.  The baskets contain only high protein foods and fruits and vegetables, something that is very short at home for these families.  A very special thanks in particular to our friends in Ireland who sent funds for the dry items. 

It’s been a great year, thanks to you all, and you are all part of the success of 27 students will finish their programs of study this year.  Merry Christmas!!
