In the morning we headed up into the hills to Parrojas, where Brian, Stephen, Jamie, and Mynor had built a house for Alejandra, a 79-year-old widow elder member of the Parrojas village. Members brought her new bedding and clothing. She told us that she feels so rich. Just check out the view from her home!
Following the dedication of the house, team members walked up the hill to visit the dairy co-op. This project is sponsored by SHARE Canada. We saw the new heifer (female) calves and met their owners.
Afterward, Loving Arms and the co-op members treated us to a traditional celebratory lunch of chicken in broth with tortillas, rice, potatoes, carrots, squash and guisquil, served with hibiscus juice.
