Peru: From Prison, With All Our Heart

Every year, the Foundation Against Cancer of Peru [es] carries out a fundraising campaign called “Ponle corazón” [Put your heart in it] for children with cancer. Affected because in the last three years the collection has been unable to reach its planned goal, the inmates of Miguel Castro Castro penitentiary facility carried out a five-day long collection [es] inside the prison in an amazing and successful token of solidarity.

Peruvian Twitter users highlighted the action with messages from the microblogging network, such as Lorena Fernald (@LorenaFernald) [es] who tweeted:

@LorenaFernald: Hasta en los lugares menos pensados colaboran con #PonleCorazón. Y tu, ya colaboraste?  vía @youtube

@LorenaFernald [es]: Even in the most unthinkable places they are collaborating with #PonleCorazón. What about you, have you contributed? vía @youtube
