How Guatemala's Most Beautiful Lake Turned Ugly

Unfortunately, at a time already hit by the economic downturn, the food crisis caused by rising prices making it very difficult for people to afford enough food, this extra disaster is affecting so many people.
The fisherman, the tuk tuk drivers, the restaurants and the people who work in them, many hotels have been laying off workers. Work is very difficult to find here now for many people. This kind of desperation brings about terrible situations.
We have more and more people asking for help with food every day.
Please remember that we are distributing baskets of food for Christmas/ Holidays. These baskets have the ingredients to make Tamales for the traditional Christmas meal and other basic ingredients which will help people have something to eat. These baskets feed a family of 10 people. The baskets cost $35 US and we are in great need of having as many as we can for this upcoming Holiday season.

If you would like to donate a basket in Honor of a special person, we will send them an email advising of this wonderful gift with a photo of the family who will receive their gift...we will also make note on our website in the IN HONOR section that a gift has been made in their name.
