Something that makes this dinner so special is the fact that there is going to be a donation drop point to collect items for YOLIGUANI, a local shelter for pregnant women and their babies.


Yoliguani is a home for homeless or abandoned pregnant women.

This homey shelter offers its residents: guidance, emotional and psychological support.

The shelter also covers:

  • Medical care before and after childbirth
  • Feeding supplies if needed: formula, bottles, etc.
  • Training for the expectant mothers
  • A place to live for the mother and children

The shelter has serviced 820 women and their babies, helping them when there is no one else or the family is absent or unable to support them.
