Washington Zambrano brought some wood carvings from Otavalo Ecuador the last time he visited the United States on a Charity Anywhere trip. His intentions were to sell these carvings to help cover the cost of the trip. We still have a few of these hand carved statues left to sell. For those of you that have traveled to Otavalo, this might be your last chance to purchase one of these wood sculptures made in Ecuador. Below are the links to the carvings we have left. The money you spend on these carvings will go directly back to Washington Zambrano and the CAF Foundation in Ecuador.
