SPECIAL PROJECT: HOT CHOCOLATE FOR THE FAMILIES IN THE ANDES NEAR OLLANTAYTAMBO, PERU 2013
This Christmas 2013 Path of the Heart will bring hot chocolate, special bread and gifts to 3,000 children, and to their families in 20 native villages in the Valleys and upper Highlands of the Andes in Peru. Most of these villages do not currently have electricity. They also have only one school and teacher living in the village. Due to the difficult conditions of living at this high altitude there are limited chances for outside groups to visit the villages for the Chocolatada celebration. For over 11 years we have been bringing happiness and joy to the inhabits of the Sacred Valley region. Help us continue this all important mission of love. Visit the donation page to make a donation.
