Feeding, painting and beading with Chile’s less fortunate
Aspen Chile demonstrated our ongoing caring spirit by reaching out to three beneficiaries.
Casa Caridad Don Orione is an NGO that supports 56 children and adolescents with intellectual disabilities and whose rights have been violated. Fundación Las Rosas accommodates 45 underprivileged adults who are subjected to poverty and Coanil is a center that promotes the inclusion of 15 adolescents afflicted with intellectual disabilities.
A range of activities were hosted for the beneficiaries in relation to their needs and their availability. A dreary wall at Casa Caridad Don Orione was painted in bright green symbolizing growth, life and hope; donations of equipment were made to Coanil’s adolescents; and the elderly received toiletries, diapers and other hygiene products.
Our biggest donation was our love, and, most especially, the time that we shared making bracelets with the girls of Casa Caridad Don Orione as well as serving dinner to the elderly residents at Fundación Las Rosas.
The team experienced a deep sense of humility and satisfaction by caring for those who are less fortunate, and we look forward to being caring ambassadors for Aspen again in 2020 through our Mandela Day activities.
