The children´s home “Virgen de la Candelaria” in the village of Salcedo in Puno, is the third institution to benefit from Interweaving.
Interweaving, which brought together over 800 people in the Main Square in Puno, today continues to deliver the garments and accessories that attendees to the event as well as the Manuelas from Puno were able to knit in just a four hour period. On this occasion, boys and girls from the home “Virgen de la Candelaria” were visited by Manuela Ramos staff who made the official delivery of donations collected at Interweaving, an activity held as part of the campaign: “Housework must be shared by the entire family”.
“We have heard of work carried out by Manuela Ramos with artisan women and we are proud of the progress and production capacity they have achieved. This is evident when we look at the garments collected during the public event. Our children will happily use these garments. We hope that more institutions will continue to support those who need the most support”, commented Leónidas Gutiérrez, director of the Children’s Home.
All boys and girls from “Virgen de la Candelaria” proudly showed off their hats and gloves amongst the following comments: “This hat is to keep my ears nice and warm”, “This pair of pants is for the baby”, and “I will use this hat because it´s really cold”.
