Cristina in Guatemala with Mayan Families

Hi Everyone,

Cristina is desperate for help. Her husband had an accident where he slid down a cliff and was injured and in a lot of pain. He went to the doctor for his injuries and found out he also has diabetes. About 15 days ago he was operated on for a stomach illness in which they removed several masses from his stomach. Her husband is now bound to his bed and in terrible pain. He's still recovering from his fall and now his surgery. He also does not have any diabetes medication, which he urgently needs.

With an ill husband Cristina is trying to provide for their 4 children alone. But she only ever made it to first grade and finding work is a challenge. Two of their four children are in school and they just can't afford the school payments anymore. 

Wilmar is 10 years old and is in 3rd grade. Cristofer is 7 years old and is in 1st grade. Both boys enjoy going to school and learning new things. School is especially important for Cristofer, who is still learning Spanish. Both boys grew up speaking Kachiquel in their home.

Cristina came to us asking for help. Her husband is very ill and she can't afford to keep her children in school.

Thank You!
