The first month of the year was planned out so that our little ones could enjoy their vacation! The kids will finish their days off from school with many fun stories from their trips to Porto de Galinhas Beach and the Mirabilandia Amusement Park.
It’s heartwarming to see the children with smiles on their faces, enjoying life and all the opportunities that God has given them!
And all of this wouldn’t be possible without your help.
Thank you to all of you who support us, whether financially or through volunteer work.
Now, join us by reading below to know all about how our month of January went!
Data from 2021
Before getting into all the news from this month, let’s look into some great news from the past year! It is a blessing from God to be able to continue welcoming at-risk children into our community. Not only that, but to be a part of their transformation and seeing them be reintegrated or adopted into loving families.
Please keep praying for us in 2022!
As great as vacation has been, our children are looking forward to going back to school! 100% of our school-aged children are duly registered and ready to return to their studies.
Pictured, you can see our staff member Leide signing all the registration papers. We thank God for allowing us to guarantee the access to education for our little ones!
On January 6th, we took our little ones to the beach for a fun getaway from their routine at Lar Maná.
They kids played games and had a lot of fun! And of course, they all enjoyed playing in the water in this summer heat!
Trip to “Porto de Galinhas Beach”
We had the amazing opportunity to provide a very different and happy experience for our children!
On 01/17, we stocked our van with supplies, suitcases, and of course our little ones, and headed to “Porto de Galinhas”, where we stayed until the 20th.
The kids were able to enjoy their school vacation by visiting the beautiful beaches and tourist attractions that are found around there!
The Executive Secretary of Social Assistance and Human Rights, partnered with the Secretary of Health of Paulista, provided medical exams for our children.
They sent a nurse from ELO laboratory to collect blood samples from each one of the kids in order to check if everything is ok with them.
It was not an easy task, since some of our little ones are very afraid of needles. However, the kids were able to overcome their fears with the encouragement of our loving staff members.
We’d like to express our enormous gratitude to institutions CEVIPE (Pernambuco Vision Center) and IOFV (Fernando Ventura Eye Institute) for all the care, love and excellence in their recent volunteer work!
They granted our children eye exams so that they could go back to school with their eye health up to date. Thank you CEVIPE and IOFV!
