Sure We Can
Featuring Sister Ana Martinez de Luco
Sister Ana Martinez de Luco was born in Spain, in the Basque
Country. At age 25, she moved to the Philippines and spent
the next 23 years of her life serving people who suffered
from extensive deprivation and injustice. After leaving the
Philippines she, came to New York and worked as a volunteer
for UNANIMA . On October 18, 2004, Sister Ana became
homeless and committed her life to serving the homeless
community of New York.
Sister Ana Martinez de Luco and Eugene Gadsden, a veteran
bottle collector, worked together to establish a redemption
center in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The center, “Sure We Can,”
serves as a facility where anyone, not just the homeless, can
trade cans, bottles and plastics in exchange for money. The
philanthropists hope to reach a point where over 25,000 cans
(a worth of more than $37,000 a month) can pass through their
center each day.
