When Nuevo Camino volunteers visited San Juan for the first time, they promised to return with school supplies, medicines, and building supplies for the village. When they returned a few days later, they were surprised to be greeted by a crowd of people, furnished with crowns of flowers. Students had spent two afternoons hand crafting the crowns, to show appreciation to their new friends. Their gratitude was beautiful, and represented the heart of Nuevo Camino…spreading love between neighbors across the globe.
This month, San Juan parents and teachers finished construction their new school kitchen! With financial support from Something New, each family donated bricks and helped build this great new facility for the community. Check out the final product, and the steps along the way!
