Thanks to Colonel Angel Orellana, Commandant of the Naval  Base of Jaramijó, who gave us the soldiers and a truck to pass six tons of goods from the Supermarket Grand Aki of Manta to the Basilica Monserrat of Montecristi.

26 in the dawns, we prepare the baskets in the Basilica. Thanks to Father Angel who has opened us his doors and who has accommodated us with a lot of enjoyment and a big hospitality. 

A little later people already queue up in front of the Church to come to celebrate Christmas “in family”.l

The Basilica fills very fast, only those who received a ticket can enter, with an accompanying person.

The happy children with their cuddly fluff which arrived directly from Switzerland, thanks to Line Gäumann and to Angela Recchia who carefully harvested them.

For the first time, we substitute the chicken by a simple card containing a $6 credit for the purchase of a chicken, what constitutes a big improvement for the basket….

The party is made a success !

The Church is crammed!

At the exit, even there the servicemen help to enforce the order..

People leave with their happy…
