On Decem­ber, 11, 2010, the work­ers of CARE Peru donated $1100 of in-kind goods to imple­ment the day­care of Mujeres Unidas.  Every year, the work­ers of CARE Peru put on a con­test to give a Christ­mas gift to an impov­er­ished com­mu­nity.  The women of Mujeres Unidas put together a pro­posal and pre­sented to the work­ers at the orga­ni­za­tion, and won the con­test.  They also hosted a small Christ­mas party for the chil­dren in the com­mu­nity.
