More than 200 children from the Carmen Cecilia Palma School of Initial Education located in Caracas enjoyed the celebrations hosted by the Aspen Venezuela team.

The students at the school all have mental disorders or Down’s Syndrome. Members of the South African Embassy in Venezuela joined the Aspen team for the Mandela Day events that stretched over 2 days.

Facilities at the school were in need of significant improvements so the teams set to work painting, cleaning and improving the environment for the children. Time was also spent doing what kids do best – having fun. Face painting, games, musical activities, a fabulous party with treats, and an extensive range of donations were graciously received by the children and the school management.

The events were also supported by Caracas County (Alcaldía) and Horus Security Advisors.
