Christmas. For JUMAS [Boys’ Youth] from Amoreira, it seems that the most worthwhile way to experience this moment is by showing solidarity.
The Toy Campaign is carried out every year at this time, and it only seeks to bring joy to children who live in the less favorable neighborhoods of San Sebastián de Amoreira. Many times these houses are lacking everything, but at least once a year, there is a feeling of joy expressed in the little ones’ smiles.
The project counts on help from the entire Amoreira community, through donations, distribution, with a local business even serving as a collection point.
This year approximately 100 children benefitted; this is the number we offer to our Mother today as Capital of Grace, so that she may take the same joy that we experienced here to the whole world.
