Greetings our dear friends, volunteers, family and believers!
Once again, we would love to share with all of you our activities, happy and sad moments, progress, dreams, new projects, and some of the action that happens at Los Patojos, Siempre en la lucha!
These two months were tough, difficult and meaningful, we will give more images and less words, so you guys can imagine and feel whatever your heart and mind tells. Here we go:
Lets start with the tough part, well, Ingrid González was fighting for her life over two years, 11 years old, so many dreams and so many ideas that could changed this world, so many lessons that we learned from her, some many love that we got from her... She is now resting in peace, no more pain, no more suffer.
Thank you all for the support you gave Ingrid during this time. Ingrid is and will be in our hearts for the rest of our lives!
