Revisit to the poor Larati group in Bolivia

(This blog post in swedish can be seen here.)

In the summer of 2018 me and my family was in Bolivia and we revisited the poor Larati community. Our charity gave to them last year but this time I was also there with my family.

Our help consisted of giving yarn to a woman association and rice, sugar, cooking oil and macaroni to around 138 families. This was given on July 20, 2018.

They really wanted to give thank you gifts to me and my family and it would be rude to not accept, so we accepted. It was a lot of food to eat, 2 big sacs of potatoes and one sheep we brought home to our place in Bolivia. Our children loved that sheep and wanted to bring it home to our house in Sweden which is of course not possible :)

A big thanks to the following volunteers

The following people spent a lot of hours without compensation making this possible:

Alicia Vargas Corrales, Neyda Montaño Vargas, Daniel Montaño Vargas, Jim Westergren, Alvin Westergren, Alice Westergren.

A big thanks to the following who donated money and made this possible
