Los Jazmines Children’s Day Shelter
Christmas greeting cards
Maipœ, Mendoza Province
The Mendoza Family Support Association (AAFME) runs six day shelters for children in and around the city of Mendoza, where volunteers strive to improve the nutritional, health, educational and social conditions of the children who range from young babies right through to teenagers.
In July 2003, the Foundation decided to donate €100 for the purchase of paper and pencils, which the children then used to make drawings that were later turned into greeting cards.
The aim of the activity was two-fold: to develop the children’s creativity and also to raise funds for the purchase of a new building.
The drawings were printed as postcards in the Netherlands, where they are being sold.
