Help us bring a little holiday joy to the lives of children living in extreme poverty in Honduras.

Help us bring a little holiday joy to the lives of children living in extreme poverty in Honduras by contributing with the Rotaract Club of Tegucigalpa ( http://rtc-tegucigalpa.blogspot.com/ ) in our effort to raise $2,000 to put together a Christmas celebration for the children of “Los Quebrachitos”.

“Los Quebrachitos” is a community of 50 families and approximately 250 people living in extreme poverty just 15 minutes from the capital of Honduras. Most houses are made of carton, plastic, and wood and its inhabitants have no running water or electricity. Children with inflamed abdomens due to malnutrition run around half-naked because their parents are not able to afford clothing. Garbage is ubiquitous due to the lack of any kind of waste disposal system.

The Rotaract Club of Tegucigalpa has been working with “Los Quebrachitos” community for the past three years in an effort to improve the quality of life of these individuals living in extreme poverty. This holiday season, our goal is to raise $2,000 in order to bring a little joy to the lives of approximately 100 children living in this community by putting together a Christmas celebration with holiday food, Christmas presents, piñatas and other fun activities. This is most likely the only celebration these kids will have this holiday season and their only chance of getting a Christmas present this year.

Help us make this Christmas celebration a reality for the children of “Los Quebrachitos”. They need our help and we need your help in order to make it happen.
