Elderly Care Program
The food crisis in Guatemala is having a devastating effect on the elderly.
Without enough to eat, many older people are becoming weak and malnourished, leaving them more vulnerable to illnesses that they cannot afford medical care for. They are unable to provide for even their most basic needs. In many cases family members are unable to help as they struggle to feed themselves and their children, leaving the elderly without any form of support and often living in heartbreaking conditions.
Please help us bring them the life-sustaining food and medical care that they so desperately need: Please sponsor an elderly person or make a one-time donation today.
Sponsorship provides an elderly man or woman with a hot, nutritious meal daily. General donations are used to ensure that we always have an adequate supply of food, medicine, blankets, diapers, and funds for necessary medical treatment and transportation. Via blog and web album, we'll show you exactly where your aid is going. Your generosity will be life changing for the elderly men and women in this program.
