This is a record of our distribution of five
and a half tonnes of avocados to the poor.
.....Thanks to.Camposol S.A.
On the 26th July 2003 Camposol delivered a generous donation of five thousand five hundred kgs. of avocados - these arrived at our centre in Trujillo with the help of a police escort. We already had a plan as to how we were going to distribute the produce, this we put into action as soon as we had the hundreds of crates stacked in our entrance. Bruce Peruīs mission is to help street children and abandoned mothers and we are currently unrolling a project which aims to convert working children into students thus giving them a chance of a better future. There is demonstarable evidence to indicate that in order for a country to develop the Government must invest at least 6 percent of GDP in education. The present Government has promised an insufficient three percent and is in fact only delivering two. Without a drastic improvement in the level of education Peru will be unable to develop and itīs people will remain without hope of a better future. It is for this reason that Bruce Peru is currently working in the poorest Barrios of Trujillo on our "education revolution" to give the children and the country a chance of an impoved and prosperous future.
. One of the best ways to reach these needy children is through the Medium of Motherīs Clubs and it was principly though our contacts with them in the barrios that we distributed Camposolīs generous donation.
More than 50 clubs that had access to Transport came to our
|centre to collect 30 kg each which we controlled
to ensure a fair distribution. Other clubs joined together to obtain transport
such as those of Porvenir who came with a hired truck to take away and distribute
800 kilos of paltas, and Esperanza who borrowed the Mayorīs pickup truck
to deliver the same size donation to the clubs with the help of volunteers
from Bruce Peru. Unfortunately we do not have our own transport so for those
areas that had no means of collecting Paltas we hired convoys of large taxis
to deliver them to a central point in each barrio where motherīs clubs could
come to collect them. This was the case in both Florencia de Mora and Las
Delicias, where with the help of the coordinator of the motherīs clubs and
the Mayoress respectively, we delivered 600 and 800 kgs.
We also distibuted Paltas to other organizations which are doing
vital work with the young and needy of Trujillo. To this end we donated
80 kg to EMAUS, Hogar San Jose, and Hogar de Esperanza; 120 kg to Casa
Divina Providencia and Centro Juvanil; and 240kg to Aldea Infantile Santa
Rosa. The remainder of the donation was used in our comidor where we provide
food to needy children free of charge, and where we saw first hand their
enjoyment in eating such fine quality paltas. Bruce Peru would like to
express itīs gratitude to Camposol for itīs kind donation on behalf of
the poor and needy of Trujillo and will be at itīs disposition to control
the distribution of any future donation which this generous company may
like to make.
