INFOCIMA Nº 24 DECEMBER 2022

The smile of the month

Miguel Juárez

At the beginning of 2019, my mom suggested I go to the CIMA home. I responded badly to my mother and went to the streets with my friends. My mom called my grandfather and together they brought me to CIMA, which for me is a paradise. I arrived in July 2019. I immediately liked the farm workshop; God also gave me a gift for music and I belong to the Wayra Marka group. As time goes on, I realize that I had stopped responding in a bad way. My mom came to visit and was surprised. Then she stopped visiting me and my grandfather started coming. I thank God and Father Jean-Louis for receiving me in his home and I ask God to give my grandfather many more years of life.


Testimony of Brayan Tananta – ExCIMA

I lived a very beautiful childhood at CIMA. It taught me many things that help me when I need them the most. Thanks to CIMA, I am a good, hardworking, respectful, humble and kind-hearted person. I am grateful to Father Jean-Louis, the tutors and teachers for all their support. Many thanks to my CIMA family. Long live the CIMA home, my home! I hope to always be in touch with my friends, my brothers at CIMA. Also, I want to enjoy the reunions with the whole CIMA family. Benedictions and hugs for all.


Testimony of Pablo Deichmann – volunteer from Germany

Hello

My name is Pablo Deichmann and I am 20 years old. I am from Germany and I volunteer at CIMA for one year since September 2022. At CIMA, I help Professor Felipe every morning in the technical initiation workshop. From Felipe I have learned how important humor is in daily work. In the afternoons I help Professor Daniel in the carpentry workshop. Working with wood is a lot of fun and encourages creativity in children. In this workshop students learn to be persevering, because the projects usually last several weeks. It is always worth the time and effort invested, because in the end you get great products such as: cutting boards, chessboards, guitar stands, lamps, etc. Daniel dedicates a lot of time to each child and it is always important for him to know what each student is doing at all times. I also work in hydroponics every day and give German lessons every Tuesday. Every two weeks we go to the food bank and pick fruit and vegetables for CIMA. On Thursdays I pick up food from a supermarket together with the coordinator Fernando. What I like about CIMA is the beautiful mountain scenery and the numerous farm animals. I like to spend time with the kids and play with them or just talk to them. Everyday I get a smile, a hug or an attention. I wish the best for CIMA and a successful future for the boys.
