Family of Orphans get a bed for Christmas!

This young family of children is being brought up by the elderly grandparents.
The mother died in childbirth with the youngest and the family died approx. 18 months later from diabetes that was left untreated as the father did not have the financial resources.

The elderly grandparents have done as much as they can to help the children.They are in the Mayan Families Orphan Program which provides support for orphans so that they can remain in the care of extended family.
Mayan Families has provided them with school sponsorship and milk for the youngest when she was a baby. We have provided them with medical and dental treatment and they are fortunate that one of their sponsors has bought them a new bed so now they will have two beds to share between them!
