Every year in December, some friends of mine travel to poor communities in the north of Minas Gerais state in Brazil to bring donations and make their Christmas slightly more bearable. These communities are usually “forgotten” by the government and by other NGOs and rarely receive any support, despite being in great need for drinking water (due to drought), food, clothes and medication. This year, they are collecting donations to support the community of Ponto Chique, one of the poorest communities in the state.
I know many of us want to give something back to the world at this time of the year (especially in a year like this!!) so I created a Leetchi page to collect money, in case anyone else would like to contribute with a couple of francs. Any donationcan go a long way as it can help to buy food for these families, and help to make their Christmas slightly merrier. 😊
