Wine Tasting Fundraiser Event in Chino


Amigos Latino Americanos De Las Hermanas Samaritanas is holding a Wine Tasting Fundraiser this upcoming Saturday night, October 13th.  To quote once more,  Fundi2 loves the cause so much and has written about before – you can link here to read about it.  The cause is to help the less fortunate and elderly in Molina, Chile who seek help from Madre Irene.

Amigos Latino Americanos De Las Hermanas Samaritanas (ALADLHS)  is a new entity that is composed of 20 members who come from different Latin American nations, such as Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Chile. The entity’s goal is to raise funds for El Hogar del Buen Samaritano en Molina. This home in Chile was founded more than 30 years ago by Madre Irene. Presently, this Wine Tasting Fundraiser in Chino is ALADLHS’ first fundraiser event and more specifically it is to gather funds for El Hogar del Buen Samaritano en Molina, Chile. A point to be made since El Hogar del Buen Samaritano has also established new homes in Iquique, Chile and in the countries of Columbia and Spain. With current plans to expand to Puebla, Mexico.

Fundi2, also would like  to take a moment to make a clear distinction that this fundraiser event is exclusively and only organized by the group, Amigos Latino Americanos De Las Hermanas Samaritanas. There are not any other groups or entities affiliated or involved in this particular wine tasting fundraiser event of October the 13th.

Since this event is not exclusively Chilean related, Fundi2 would like to introduce the Chilean link of this event to the readers.

Below is the invitation in Spanish directly from the Facebook page of one of the member’s (Ranchera Soy) of the Amigos Latino Americanos De Las Hermanas Samaritanas:


Lo que se recaude de Wine Tasting es para ayudar a las hermanas samaritanas, que tienen su congregacion en Chile ademas de otros dos paises.

Que son Mexico y Colombia ellas se encargan en cuidar a los viejitos que son abandonados por su familia, o que tienen enfermedades terminarle y cual los cuidan para que tengan una muerte menos dolorosa.

Las Hermanas Samaritanas no son ayudadas por los gobiernos, sobreviven por donaciones que instituciones les aportan como privados y cuales hacen eventos para poderles recaudarles lo mas que se pueda.

Los invito que participen y aporten un poco para ayudarles a Las Hermanas.
