Update on ASODISPIE
In November of last year, ASODISPIE was still in their rented facilities. Twelve months later they have their own brand-new centre on a plot of land provided for their use by the municipality of Piedecuesta. They have done a tremendous job and deserve a lot of credit. They are grateful to those who helped them realize a 14 year-old dream: the mayor of Piedecuesta who made it possible for them to have the land on which to build, Carlos the engineer and construction manager, CAPD and the Ruitoque Rotary club for their financial assistance. The pictures below will give you a quick tour of the Centre followed by a few pictures of other activities. I hope you agree with me that they deserve a pat on the back and a hearty “CONGRATULATIONS”. Marlene

And, of course, they have accessible bathrooms with showers.
Would you believe they have a little duck pond with hens, roosters and ducks? The plan is to sell the eggs.
Lyrrobs, the administrator, returns a duckling to the pen so it can fight for a few morsels at feeding time.
As in past years, we constructed special seating for children with very special needs.
Our team worked efficiently on seating for two children.
The FANDIC dance troupe helped them celebrate a pre-inauguration.
And now it's time to say "so long", it has been a good day.
