Each year since 2008,  Apus Peru and their partner organisation Threads of Peru, have hosted an annual Chocolatada in the remote community of Chaullacocha.  While Threads of Peru (and generous Apus Peru clients) host the event, Apus Peru staff  actually run it and it has a become a special “high” point in the annual calendar. While a long, wet, cold and challenging day, its also a fun day, when Apus staff member’s family participate and join in. This year we would like to specially thank the Apus Peru clients who gave substantial donations so that the children could get toys, chocolate and bread at Christmas time.

  • Jerzy, Ewa, Daniel Gwozdzinski
  • Tianna Meriage-Reiter and her husband Yuri donated the clothes.

Your generosity is very much appreciated.
