Hoops for Paraguay

Recently I made a couple of children's hoops for Rosa Frias, who has been tirelessly fundraising for years to help build a medical/ dental clinic for street children in Limpio, Paraguay through Companion of the Cross. The children are very poor and have very few toys to play with, so Rosa was gathering some items to bring on her upcoming trip. I thought that perhaps some durable hoops (taped in the colours of the flag of Paraguay) might provide some activity and fun. Rosa is in Paraguay now and sent back some photos, including this one of her (far right), Shannon (another volunteer on the mission), and a group of smiling children. Generally we find that smiles and hoops go hand-in-hand, and this is no exception!
