Elderly Feeding Program in Guatemala.

We have three wonderful volunteers, Ronnie, Stephanie and Jessica who are here with us for 6 weeks. They have been very busy working with several projects but the Elderly Feeding Program has been benefitting from their attention.

Ronnie has been visiting them daily, finding out the needs and providing medications .
Dona Lencha has broken a hip and is having a lot of pain and trouble walking. We have provided her with medication and a new walker to help her get around.

Dona Fransisca is deaf and does not speak much but she has a beautiful smile!
She is in need of adult diapers and thanks to the donations that we have received she is able to have them.
Her grandson, Jose David is a special needs young man and he also needs adult diapers.

Ronnie has been bringing a lot of joy to the Elderly during her visits. We are very grateful for all the work that she, Jessica and Stephanie are doing. The Elderly are in need of more support, we need medications and support for them. If you would like to sponsor an elderly person for a meal a day, it is just $3 US per day to provide a nourishing meal. Sometimes this is the only meal that they get all day.
To donate ...please go to our website, www.mayanfamilies and click on donate.
