South America | Peru | Northern Peru | Trujillo – fiesta a Bruce Peru
Today was one of my best days so far. We had a party in the garden with lots of ballons, games and music. The kids were so excited, I got all emotional watching them play.
There was a little girl who came up to me in the morning before the party. She always wears the same old, dirty jogging bottoms and an old T-shirt with holes in it. She was asking me if I could lend her a skirt for the party today. It was obvious that none of my clothes would fit her but when I asked Bruce, he showed me bags full of clothes and shoes that other volunteers had brought over time and I found her a lovely pink top, some denim shorts and blue trainers. She looked great and I took her to the bathroom and lifted her up so she could see herself in the mirror.
I´m not sure who was happier – her or me. It put a big smile on my face seeing her run around in her new outfit.
I think I will ask Bruce to be in charge of the clothes distribution. I found some really cute things in those bags and some of the kids desperately need some new things to wear.
Anyway, the party is not over yet… I better go.
