Elderly care program in Guatemala.

These are just a few of the elderly that we are caring for in San Jorge la Laguna.
The program we have provides a hot and healthy lunch every day for 40 elderly people who live in the village who have little or no family support.
They receive medical care and medicines as we have them.
They are incredibly grateful for the little that we are able to do for them.
There were several of them this week who were fortunate enough to receive blankets and even mattresses from a kind donor.
The mattresses will make a huge difference to some of the elderly, they are often bedridden and lying on bare boards with just a straw mat for over the bare boards. They often do not have enough blankets and are cold at night.
If you would like to sponsor an elderly person for meals, a blanket , a mattress would be greatly appreciated.
