4 am: We just received the first images from the Christmas celebration in Curahuasi. Based on the images, we assume that between 600 and 700 kids and parents took part in the event. We haven’t heard from the Diospi Suyana team in Curahuasi.

For the Christmas party the sun was shining and many kids arrived in a t-shirt. Diospi Suyana stands for more than medicine and hospital.
The celebration was the highlight of this year’s kids club which will now close its doors until the new year. A year ago, Lyndal Maxwell and Dr Martina John started the first kids club with about 18 children. It grew from 18 to 500 – quite an impressive growth rate. We can only imagine how much time it must take to prepare the kids program week after week.
We’ll keep you posted.
