Backpacks of Love 2017

 

Join us in our annual backpacks of love drive!

Once again, Extending a Hand Foundation (Fundacion Una Mano Amiga) is hosting the "Backpacks of Love" campaign. Each year we support children from the Santa Ana, Santa Elena and  Nazareth Orphan schools, sick seniors from the Guillermo Greffestein Elderly Home, and other poor kids from the villages around Agua de Dios with a backpacks drive campaign, delivering backpacks full of primary necessities to those in need.
