Venezuela Mission
Ambassador Dame Dr. Patricia Castillo - Venezuela
The classes start on february 2009, we are almost done. It is in a barrio between Barcelona and Puerto la Cruz at a place called Barrio colinas del esfuerzo where we found the kids taking classes under a mango tree.
The library-school project is ready and we already have 85 children enrolled. There is still no bathroom (there is no water or electricity) but the children are happy!

Next week the local government will send some doctor to help with the first screening and there will be some odontologists too!
The knights cross will be blessing our work.

The director of the sanitary department in my town gave me the permission to prepare the medicine for the basic childrens homeopathic kit. This is really a blessing that we will be able to help them with this. Thank you for this donation many times.
To finance the social projects I developed 6 seminars in contemplative techniques to reduce stress impact on health and pain control. If You feel I can deliver any of this seminars I have them prepared both in English and Spanish. All trhe info is in the blog www.embajadadepaz.blogspot.com

"Actions are better than words . As I was thinking what would be the next step to take to really help, my daughter Andreina and I decided to join the Bruce Peru volunteer group in Trujillo.

They have taken the task of finding the children that are out of the school system and leveling them to be able to attend regular school, so they actually go house by house searching for these kids and offer them the opportunity to learn. They serve one meal a day (bred and cheese is all they can afford)and arrange with a social worker for them to have medical and dental care. All is done with volunteers from arround the world and financed with charity money."
smokh "Since I feel that peace is a priority we wrote a project proposal that included the use of mandalas to improve cognition and memory/attention span and nutrition lectures to help introduce foods that would induce neurotransmitters balace. "
smokh "Food and mental exercises do make a difference in the creation of thoughts that will manifest as inner peace, promoting the state of well being necessary for learning and progressing . "
smokh "Peru turned out to be more beautiful than we thought. The richness of its landscapes, the gentleness of its people and the inmensity of its social problems shocked us and made us reshape our program to adapt to the situation.

They need so many things that it is hard to make a priorities list.

How can we help?

They need:

Education: for parents and children

Food: better nutrition, nutritional guidelines, sanitary advise, quantity and quality.

Love, peace and hope: social support, criminality management, moral issues. "
"My project is to reach as many people as I can and hand them written advise on nutrition and natural medicine. For example your recipe for parasites is out there and working for many. I even gave it in Peru on national TV at a press conference they did to cover our work. " " I have found that just nutrition and happiness is a big step and homepathics are the cheapest remedies after infusions. As you know these countries are so poor that pharmaceuticals are out of question."
