Subject: Fw: Shoe delivery was a success
To: MiguelEspinosa <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Last Thursday, six of us delivered 40 pairs of shoes to kids in the mountain villages of Cuititlan, Cuzalapa and Tres Marias.
At one school we were asked to return after we visited a nearby coffee cooperative. When we returned, the whole school of 45 students was gathered in the schoolyard to sing the Mexican national anthem in both Spanish and Nahuatl, their indigenous language!
We also stopped at a kindergarten before travelling to the remote pueblito of Tres Marias (population approximately 80), where we had lunch with the local teacher. (We brought the lunch, and she prepared it for us).
The shoes were truly appreciated by the children.
We will let the pictures speak for themselves!
