2015 Nov. woman abuse center distribution in El Salvador

In San Salvador we distributed goods for the benefit of 6000 homeless children and a home for abused women. These support programs were organized by the Vice President’s wife, Elda Galdis Tobar Ortiz. We provided sandals, shoes, ceramic gift items, clothing, kitchenware, hats and a variety of other items. We also donated 10 computers this year to develop their vocational skills to aid them in job searches and help break the cycle of poverty.

2015 Nov. Simplyhelp's senior center no. 4 distribution

In Zaragoza we did an afternoon distribution at Senior Center #4, where we have 28 seniors housed. We brought them medical supplies, a washing machine, walkers, toilets, diapers and juicers. Richard Yu also brought reading glasses to distribute to them. Ling brought prayer dolls to them, which they really enjoyed.
All the seniors were so glad to see us again, with our last visit being in February of this year. The manager “wish list” of supplies was completely fulfilled.

2015 Nov. Simply help's senior center no. 3 distribution in El Salvador

Senior Center #3 in Cojutepeque houses 38 homeless seniors. Centers #1, #2 and #5 have 34 seniors each. The goods we distributed on this trip fulfilled each of the center manager’s one-year “wish list”, which they provided to me several months ago.
Thanks to our local volunteers and Church members, all the seniors are happy and well cared for. The managers have also arranged for a certified nurse, paid by a local donor, to help out with the medical needs of the ailing. The Mayor has also provided additional medical care by having a local nursing school visit weekly to provide services as part of their training.

2015 11 La libertad El Salvador distribution

Our SimplyHelp distribution team in La Libertad, El Salvador, consisted of eight: Tina Bow, Ling Yu, Chin-Chin and Paul Chan, Richard and Nathaniel Yu, Mario and Mark Rivera. We arrived on Oct 29th in El Salvador to distribute the Senior Center container which we loaded on Oct. 3rd. The contents were clothing, bedding, diapers, walkers, kitchen appliances, kitchenware, blankets, canes, folding tables and chairs, kitchen cookware, washing machines, towels, socks, portable toilets, waterproof sheets, shoes, slippers, hydrothermal cushions, caps, cleaning supplies and tools. The total shipment was valued at $90,440.00
We also have vocational schools in cooperation with the ex-First Lady of El Salvador, Dona Ely de Calderon, in San Salvador and La Libertad for cooking, sewing, computer training, and maid services courses. We met with all the students in their classrooms. The school services poor young people tuition-free to learn a skill in three months, after which they can generally support themselves or assist their families with expenses. We also distributed a one-month’s supply of food to 250 poor families, as certified by the Mayor, Miguel Jimenez.
Additionally, we distributed to our vocational school in San Salvador, which was started eight years ago. This school graduates 1000 students yearly, and the feedback from student testimonials is very positive.

2015 11 city of Cojutepeque distribution in El Salavdo

In Cojutepeque, El Salvador, we have had a computer class since 2006. They now have eight computer classes in operation. We will donate another 10 computers to them for a youth development class.
Our Senior Center #3 is also in this city. The city Mayor found and donated the land to us, and we now have 38 seniors living there. All our senior centers are free for the elderly, as they all have no relatives to provide for them and receive no support payments from the Government.
We made a distribution to 120 families with Ambassador Lee’s family. The Ambassador’s wife formed a group that consists of all the wives of the foreign ambassadors in El Salvador. This group remodeled the bathroom in our Senior Center #1 with new fixtures and tile flooring. It’s beautiful! She has a great heart and everyone sincerely appreciates the improvements.
We received a very warm greeting from townspeople while we were there as well.

2015 11 Distribution in El Salvador Senior center

In the city of Colon, El Salvador, we have three senior centers and we are adding a Computer Training Program. Our distribution there aided 120 families by providing them with bags of food and clothing. Mario Rivera, who was instrumental in helping Tina Bow get SimplyHelp started, rejoined us for this distribution.
The Mayor of Colon has become a great friend to us. He initiated construction of the beautiful new road in front of our center, and provides extra food to our seniors every month.
Chin Chin located her “adopted” senior, who is now 95 years old! This was their very first meeting, and both were moved to tears from the emotional event. Even though they could not communicate in language, they formed a strong spiritual bond. It was very inspiring, and reminded us of why we work so hard to help these seniors.
