I learned about Alto Refugio through my brother, who worked here previously. Some days after school I would come here with him and my cousin (not as a volunteer) to play with the kids upstairs in Dulce Refugio. During the holidays, I have always had a job to keep from spending all my time sleeping and playing computer games. It was an opportunity to learn new things, and the money was nice. But this time was different. For various reasons, I couldn’t work where I did last year, so with the help of my parents I decided to spend this vacation volunteering at Alto Refugio. Seeing that many people do not have something to eat every day, I realized that it was not necessary for me to earn money.

Now I’ve been here almost a month, and it’s a unique experience. I’ve met new people, and it’s truly a pleasure to be here. I would encourage everyone to volunteer at Alto Refugio; it’s definitely worthwhile.
