MONROE – Union County Early College students have taken up the challenge of photojournalist Neale Bayly to help abandoned children of Peru.
Bayly spoke to the students last month about the terrible conditions and horrible stories of children in Peru who have been abandoned.
Students in Nathan Walbruch’s global awareness class decided to help out and are raising money to help aid workers with Wellspring International Outreach, a nonprofit that raises money for aid workers in Peru. Freshmen students, Andrew Giles and Joshua Dieguez organized a class penny war.
They’ve set a goal to raise $800, which would feed 100 children for 23 days.
Bayly is returning to the school later this month and students are organizing a special photography day. Bayly has agreed to take a professional portrait of students for a $2 donation to benefit Wellspring.
