CORAZON DE VIDA :: A WALK IN NATURE IS MEDICINE FOR THE SOUL Posted on 23 Jul 10:20

Now that the school year is over, the children are “officially” on summer vacation.  But what does “vacation” look like at the orphanages?  Vacation is usually a very fun and busy time for the children, with lots of activities and visitors.  However, visits are not possible now, so the orphanage directors and staff are looking for creative ways to keep the children active and healthy.

Outdoor play is an important part of the children’s lives, so one of the activities that the children have been enjoying a lot has been hiking together. Nothing like spending time in nature! Time in the outdoors improves children’s mental and physical health, teaches them about teamwork and communication skills and to love and care for the planet.
