Extending a Hand Foundation (Fundacion Una Mano Amiga) is hosting a "Backpacks of Love" campaign. Each year we support children from the Santa Ana 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.
