Last week on the way home from La Chureca we stopped off at the Red Cross
where some of us were able to donate our blood. Among the donators was Karen Bustos, a community member that we work with in Chiquilistagua.
If you donate blood in the name of a person here, it bumps them up to the top of the waiting list and guarantees that they will receive the blood they need.
We donated for Sara Zeledon, a little girl who lives in La Chureca who suffers from anemia and leukemia. Sara is also a part of our Child Sponsorship program.

Today Sara's mother was excited to report that her daughter's platelet count is improving!
