Ayuda is an institution incorporated years ago as a non-profit Public Charity organization. It has been helping children in many ways. During the last two years, for example, Ayuda has been participating in the distribution of 555 wheelchairs throughout the city of Santa Cruz and its provinces. “With the help of the Rotary Club 4690 and the Wheelchair Foundation, Ayuda has been able to deliver a wheelchair where it is needed. In addition, Tery said that Ayuda has helped in the distribution of Glycol Nutrients to children who were very sick and needed vitamins to survive. The health supplements allowed children to play and act like normal kids.
She indicated that all this has been possible thanks to many people who have volunteered and companies who have donated their products which Ayuda distributed successfully throughout the country. She emphasizes that additional help is needed with donations and volunteer work so they can continue doing their job in helping needy children. Mrs. Jackson asked readers to open their Web Page: www.AYUDA.Org to see some of the projects that Ayuda has been involved with.
“We really need your help, so in December of 2012 we can go back to Bolivia and give children a little more. Each time we do it, we all feel better. “We are so blessed in this country, and we have so much to offer. Latin American children need you, and need your help,” she said. “As little as $10 will help a lot.
