USFOL volunteers share the Holiday Spirit

9 Dec 14 (2)WILLEMSTAD - In the spirit of the holiday season U.S. Forward Operating Location (USFOL) volunteers participated in various community building projects.

Volunteers painted the exterior of the Encilia Halfway House during a visit on December 2, 2014, and met with Encilia children and staff. Eight volunteers from the USFOL spent three hours painting and cleaning the facility, which provides a safe, temporary environment for children in transition who are struggling with a variety of social and behavioral challenges. Children from the Fuik Children’s Center embraced a volunteer from the USFOL during their annual Sinterklaas Celebration December 4, 2014. Eight volunteers from the USFOL visited the children and staff at the center to decorate and assist with face painting.

USFOL and Fundashon Sentro di Dama (SEDA) volunteers painted the exterior and cleaned the yard of a community center on December 9, 2014. SEDA is a non-profit organization that supports women, children, and teens in crisis through a variety of outreach projects. The USFOL volunteers partnered with SEDA to refurbish the community center and revive the landscape.

The USFOL team continues to be involved in activities in the community in which they live, and express their gratitude for the hospitality they receive from the citizens of Curacao.
