We are very happy to have had our first event of the Christmas season 2016 with the foundation Angels of Love, located in La Ceja. We were with 28 girls who unfortunately do not have the help of their parents and live together in this foundation. We shared with them many joys, activities, recreation, snacks and gifts where they showed us their gratitude for being able to celebrate Christmas.

Camila is already 15 years old, she is going through a very complicated health situation, unfortunately her illness is terminal and her biggest dream to fulfill was her 15th birthday party. Steps Of Hope made this possible for her and her family. A pre-party Mass was celebrated. Then in the party we had Music, dinner for the guests, and a dance for Camila with her father. Finishing the party we had a show of mariachis and miniteka. There were many tears, but all of happiness, what Camila and her family felt on this day was indescribable.

It was an incredible feeling we had with this event. All the girls from the orphanage who do not have family were very excited and happy with our arrival. For these girls spending time with them is the closest to having a family and spending a more joyful Christmas. We celebrated a very beautiful Christmas day, we took Santa Claus to play with the girls and we gave a gift to each girl for Christmas, all the girls were very grateful.

Emanuel Ortiz is a 3 year old boy that suffers from a non-specified mental disorder due to a cerebral lesion. Due to this disorder he has trouble speaking and walking. The foundation Pasos de Esperanza has been helping the young boy in two different ways: We made the donation of speech therapies for his speech development. Also, we made the donation of a special walker to learn to walk and gain strength in his legs. It was a great moment when Emmanuel received his walker, it was like giving him a new car.

We are very happy to have helped Omar. Because of his illness (muscular dystrophy) he could not get up from his bed and spent all the time locked in the clinic where he lives. Now his quality of life will be better and we hope that with this wheel chair donated by Steps of Hope, specially designed for him, he will enjoy other environments and experience new things in his life. He had a beautiful, big smile on his face when the Steps of Hope foundation surprised him with his new wheel chair.

The Christmas event was made by the foundation Steps of Hope for all the children in the Hospital Pablo Tobón Uribe. Many of these children have been hospitalized for months and do not have the opportunity to go out or play because of the severity of their illness. The event was a success, we shared with the children an afternoon full of games, puppets, Santa Claus and most importantly, we saw in each child a gratifying smile, forgetting the hard problems they have to face daily.
