Heifer International to Host a Presentation on Peru in Corrales on Saturday

Kim Freeman, a veterinarian in Santa Fe, traveled to the highlands of Peru in December 2009 to visit several projects sponsored by Heifer International in that country's Cerro de Pasco region.  Here is a guest piece  for the Bread New Mexico blog ahead of a presentation in Santa Fe in September 2010.   

If you missed the Santa Fe event last year, you now have an opportunity to hear Dr. Freeman and view a slide show in the Albuquerque area.  The presentation will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24, at 6:30 p.m. at San Gabriel The Archangel Episcopal Church, 4908 Corrales Road in Corrales.

In the presentation, Dr. Freeman will share images of some of the beautiful places she experienced in Peru.  She will also talk about Heifer's work in that South American country and elsewhere around the globe and how it makes a profound difference in the lives of the participants. 

“It was an unbelievably inspiring and humbling experience to meet the men, women and children who live and work in these communities that are all at or above 10,000 ft,” she said.

Britt Densford, the new area volunteer coordinator for Heifer International in New Mexico and a host of this event, will talk about how churches and individuals in New Mexico can become involved in Heifer.
