With the aim of raising funds in benefit of the Latiendo Por Ti Foundation, Los Establos, Ciudad Ecuestre will hold on Saturday April 15th, 10:00 AM, the second edition of the Easter Picnic Egg Hunt, a fun day for the whole family.
On its first edition during the celebration of Easter in 2016, children and adults enjoyed a day of fun in an equestrian environment with various activities from finding traditional easter eggs, fun races, crafts and arts, pony tours , inflatable games, snacks, among other joyous activities.
The funds raised were used for the round of cardiovascular surgeries performed from the 23rd of March to the 7th of Abril of 2016, by the International Children’s Heart Foundation at the Dr. Robert Reid Cabral Children’s Hospital, which is the medical institution where most disadvantaged parents turn to with their sick children in pursuit of health and life.
The Latiendo Por Ti Foundation, whose motto symbolizes the love they have for each other, born from the initiative of its founder Mrs. Mary Carmen Hazoury of Fondeur, mother of Jeannie, who suffers from a serious congenital heart disease, with a group of volunteers in an effort to save lives of infants in critical heart condition. The last round of medical surgeries of the cardiovascular foundation was held last February 2017 from the 5th to the 17th, where 24 children were intervened. To date, the Latiendo Por Ti Foundation has intervened 84 beautiful children.
Expectations are of operating around 60 children each year, in addition to providing support to patients and their families in the recovery process, taking into consideration that the individual contact and education with each family of patients is essential to the success of this program . Each surgery has cost approximately USD$ 3,000 to USD$ 4,000, which are raised through various fundraising activities and donations.
