New Life Mexico has launched a campaign this week to help provide desperately needed school supplies and health and hygiene items for some of most vulnerable children in Vallarta .
Health and Hygiene talks on handwashing, teeth cleaning and body hygiene are taking place with NLMeducators in primary schools during the months of April, May and June. School supplies will be distributed during June and July to the children who will be starting the school year in August.
NLM´s “Wish list” is posted on their NEW website www.newlifemexico.com but Philippa Vernon-Powell, the Field Director here in Puerto Vallarta tells us that they are in desperate need of the following items:
Backpacks, pencil boxes/cases, boxes of 12 coloured pencils, pens, erasers, pencil sharpeners, math sets and Spanish Dictionaries for Primary School children. Hygiene items include soap, toothpaste, washcloths, toothbrushes and deodorant.
If you can help with any of these items, they can be delivered to Applegate Realtors office on Olas Altas, number 477A, across from the Piazetta Italian restaurant, just up from Kaiser Maximilian, Cafe San Angel and next door to Farmacia Fredy.
