Food Bank "Medina Azahara" 2016

One more time we made our special Christmas contribution volunteering at the local Food Bank "Medina Azahara". There Francisco and some army volunteers gave us a warm welcome in a pretty cold day. Last year we collected food at supermarkets from people's donations and later on we helped them clasify all the goods, which we realized it is quite a tantalizing task, what is more, they usually are short of hands for this matter, so this time we went straight to the collection and clasifying  center.

We learned how to do things in a proper and efficient way, we had both, Francisco and the army guys to help us. But of course, the best of it was the talking. Kids learned about humanitarian missions were some of the privates had worked, the difficulties encountered and the importance of their presence in such areas. Then Francisco explained them the ins and outs of the clasiying center so everybody could have a clear idea of what was being done there.

As always it really was a very interesting and satisfying visit, we felt happy because of the work done and because it was the begining of the Christmas holidays. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2017.
