The president of Adevida, Isabel María Guerrero, explains that in the stall "you can find all kinds of craft products, including Christmas decorations on the occasion of these dates, handcrafted furniture, dolls with handmade clothes and even a bazaar area where you can find scarves, accessories and baby clothes".
Regarding the proceeds from this solidarity action, according to Guerrero, "they are intended for pregnant women and families with young children who need help." "From Adevida we work with the report of the social workers, we analyze the situation of the family and based on that we help them in what we can", confesses Guerrero.

But this NGO has not only worked in this market, since until November 25, you could also visit the Christmas Baratillo in San Felipe Neri. "Due to the work we do to help children and pregnant women, it is worth any effort. We have finished in San Felipe Neri and for now we have set up the market here," explains Guerrero.

"I hope we are doing well and I would also like to thank the shopping center for allowing us to be here these days. Córdoba is very supportive and I am sure that they will collaborate with those mothers and children who need it most," Guerrero explains.
