Year-End Letter 2006

Filed under: PDC News — Administrator @ 10:30 am

Mahalo and Gracias to our wonderful supporters! Since our creation one year ago, PeruDonations Corporation has been blessed to fund three projects. We have raised $3158 through benefit concerts, jewelry and CD sales, and monetary gifts from donors like you. All proceeds have been used to send goods and provide for the medical needs of poor children in Peru. Your generous gifts have gone directly to those in need!

August 2007: “Project Presli” – In conjunction with Rotaplast International Inc., Presli Balbin Ordaya underwent surgery to correct severe deformities to his mouth and eye, both of which now function properly. We hope to provide more for more surgery for Presli in 2008. Many thanks to Dr. A. Capozzi, and Ely Tinoco Chinchilla.

September 2007: “Mission Merardo” in conjunction with Peru Luz de Esperanza, Doctors B. Kuhn and M. Lee of Honolulu, and E. Binkley, RN of N. Carolina, Merardo Pillpa Alvarado received specialized bandages, clothing, and nutritional support for his Epidermolysis Bullosa. Merardo now sleeps on a mattress with a pillow instead of on a dirt floor.

Special recognition to the world languages classes of Ms Oliva Lui-Kwan who have raised money for all our projects and now have bought a bicycle and Christmas presents for Merardo’s family. WAY TO GO, GUYS!!! We are proud of you!

Christmas 2006: In conjunction with Andean Outreach Project and Peru Luzde Esperanza, 400 children in a remote Andean village, most of whom never had celebrated Christmas before, were treated to a party. Babies through adolescents received hot cocoa and rolls, and clothing or a toy. The village “mamas” who donated the use of their kitchens also received a whole chicken and other gifts, so their family could have a nice Christmas dinner.

Thanks again to all the bands, businesses, promoters, sponsors, and volunteers who donated their time and talents at the benefit concerts in March and September of 2006.
