On September 29th CAFA held its annual fiesta at the Lithuanian Banquet Hall in Toronto.
The event featured authentic Peruvian cuisine, pisco sours, Latin music and much more, all while raising money for CAFA's charitable efforts.
Thanks so much to all our sponsors, attendees and volunteers for making the 2018 CAFA Fiesta a smashing success!

WHY WE HELP
An issue that can't be ignored
In Peru, high levels of poverty, lack of education and limited or no access to long term healthcare and rehabilitation can lead to tragedy.
For the 7000 child burn victims every year, life-long disability is a very real possibility.
Together, we are working to change that.
Helping children in need
CAFA is the Canadian Friends of ANIQUEM, a not-for-profit, registered charity.
Together with ANIQUEM - a not-for-profit clinic located in Lima, Peru - we help provide assistance and rehabilitation services to children injured by burns.
Through our work, we've helped provide services for over 3000 children and counting. To learn more about CAFA, what we do and how you can help, please explore the resources below.
HOW WE WORK
More than just fundraising
After a serious burn, there are many barriers that can prevent successful long term recovery for victims.
CAFA works to make treatment - both physical and psychological - accessible and affordable to victims and their families.
From transportation assistance to-and-from treatment centres, through academic scholarships, and group camps for recreation and self esteem, CAFA ensures that children don't let a single tragedy define their entire lives.
