Christmas Fiesta for Manos de Amor Children's Home
Amy Welch - Amigos de La Cruz

November 29, 2016

Join us in the celebration of Christmas Joy on December 1, at the Discovery Center of Alamar in La Cruz, from 5:30 to 10:00 pm.

There will be a piñata contest, live DJ, punch and fritters!

Children from the Manos de Amor Children’s Home will be in attendance as our special guests; they will sing Spanish Christmas songs and will help us break the piñatas!

Formed on April 13, 2004, Manos de Amor is non-profit, born from the desire of a group of citizens of Bucerias to help the less fortunate, especially the children of Bahia de Banderas. The initial project of this group was construction of an orphanage/shelter in Bucerias, the first in this area.

The children housed in this Casa Hogar are "social" orphans. This means that the parents are either unwilling or unable to care for them. Often an older sibling, a young teenager, had been trying to care for the younger children because their parents had died or had abandoned them.

You can help warm a Child's Christmas by bringing a present (a 100 - 200 peso value) to be given to a child at the event.

Alamar is located at km 2.6 Carretera a Punta de Mita in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle.
