Samaritan's Purse partnered with Calgary and Edmonton Police Services to bring hope to children in Costa Rica.
By Lisa Gareau, Marketing & Partnerships Manager with Samaritan’s Purse, shares about her recent trip to visit projects in Costa Rica with Calgary and Edmonton Police Services.
As the saying goes, many hands make light work. And as we moved to complete a community playground in Alajuelita-a highly impoverished area outside of San Jose Costa Rica-we knew it was worth the long days and dirty hands. Both those that live in this community and its community leaders claimed ownership as they dug holes, placed poles, and cleaned each piece preparing for the arrival of the children over the weekend. With their strong faith and vision this new community space is in good hands. Light work indeed.
