Happy New Year to all our dear friends and supporters of Swap Tears For Smiles and to Patti and the wonderful team at the Costa Cálida Chronicle.

We are still helping those in need in the local area when asked, but we rely on our friends especially in Camposol to let us know where and when we can help.

We receive regular updates from our friends in Hungary and Romania who are helping the orphans and street children. It is a desperate situation, but contributions have enabled them to give the children and families clothing and food and little treats when funds allow.  The children who are taken into the orphanage may stay for a day or a year, but most of these lovely children arrive with just a few clothes.  It is a joy that our funding has made it possible for little boxes to be given to them with essentials and a pillow and blanket.

God bless all who have donated to our charity in the past year and we pray that you will continue to support us through 2020.
