Dear Colin: Once the last group of your 12 kids (April 23 - July 23 / 2008) finished their volunteering and spanish training with us, here in Quito, on my behalf and that of the rest of our host families, we would like to express to you and Antipodeans staff, our gratitude and thanks for giving us, once more, the opportunity to have assisted our poor and sick children. Thanks to the registration fee, after covering our operating costs, as we do not have any staff and no salaries, it was possible to make donations of medicines to many of our children.
Your kids were fantastic at their placements complementing our purpose to help our poor little ones. Furthermore your kids immersed themselves in our culture and after visited the whole country, I am sure they enriched their spirits, culture and hearts for ever. Without any exception, all of your students dropped tears when saying goodbye to their assigned children.
As always we will do our best to make your kids comfortable and feel useful at the placements. Warm regards, Marcelo
