SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador -- KREM 2 News First Edition anchor Laura Papetti was on assignment last week, participating in a humanitarian trip to El Salvador.
Laura and KREM 2 News photographer Brett Allbery went along with World Vision, a humanitarian organization that specializes in working with children, families, and their communities to fight poverty and provide hope around the globe.
Click through the slideshow to see pictures of some of the places Laura and Brett visited. The children In these pictures live in small, mud huts with little food. Access to clean water and medicine is minimal.
We'll be talking about World Vision over the next few months on KREM 2 News, and how people can get involved by sponsoring a child. About a dollar a day can make a difference in a developing country.
