Café de la Leche comes early in July!

Café de la Leche in Fresh Fresh

This post is also available in: Spanish

After we welcomed summer with its first Café de la Leche in Fresh Fresh Café in Altos de Chavón, there’s no reason to stop the fun…so we look forward to the next Casa de Campo gathering as soon as this Friday! The 1st of July!

Café de La Leche collects more than 60% of the milk used to nourish the more than 200 babies of the Hogar del Niño’s Crib Room (Sala de Cuna). Adequate nutrition during infancy and early childhood is essential to ensure the growth, health, and development of children. Poor nutrition increases the risk of illness, and the first two years of life proves a critical window of opportunity for ensuring children’s appropriate growth. Read about our last visit to the Hogar del Niño’s Crib Room and see why it is so special here.

This time Maria Elmufdi, interior designer, will host this charitable and fun event. The event will happen in her Golf Villa #251. Villas styled by Maria always receive the highest praise by interior design magazines and are genuinely perceived as a piece of art! We are so excited that Maria is opening her house for one of the most important charitable events in Casa de Campo.
