Mayan Families Canada in Guatemala.

The Mayan Families Canada group arrived in Guatemala laden with school supplies, shoes, warm clothing and ready to give lots of hugs. The group makes an annual trip to Guatemala to visit their sponsored students. The students love to see this group every year and they have become friends with all their sponsored students and families.
Each year they select a student to renovate or rebuild their home. This year their student in Santa Catarina will be getting a new kitchen.
Yesterday they gave out egg laying chickens to 20 families. They also distributed some of the many donations that they brought. The warm jackets were wonderful and the shoes were a real joy for the children who received them.
The group will be staying here for 10 days. They will be visiting their students homes, having a back strap weaving class from the mother of one of their sponsored students. Today they will start installing the 12 stoves that they have purchased to give to needy families.
