Boxes of Hope and Love in Guatemala!

These are the Hope Chests that our wonderful volunteer, Michael designed. Michael visited many homes and saw that the children often had no beds, no tables and nowhere to store their clothes and possessions. Michael decided to start building Hope Chests .....they can be used as storage, they can be used as a bed for a small child to sleep on, they can be used as a table to eat at and also do homework.

They are beautifully painted and depending on the volunteers and their artistic abilities , they have some fantastic designs. They are all built with love!

These boxes were donated to be given to families who are very much in need.
We chose families in Panajachel who really needed to have something as useful as this box.

As you can see the families were very happy to have them. Michael and Mayan Families staff member, Carlos delivered them to the families.

If you would like to donate a Hope Chest, they are $80 US.
Thank you Michael and Carlos for all your hard work on these boxes. Thank you to the people who donated to make these boxes possible.
