Mayan Families Elderly program feeds 70 elderly people a week

The Mayan Families Elderly program feeds 70 elderly people, Monday through Friday, 5 days a week.
Once a month they have a medical evaluation to see how they are going .
We have medicines donated that can help with the average pains and aches.
We try to make sure that each of the Elderly people in our program  have their basic needs met....That they have a bed, a mattress, sheets, a blanket, a pillow , a warm jacket. 
We give them daily food , five days a week..and basic medical care from donated medicines.  
Sometimes they need more.  Like diapers....we have one elderly gentleman who is having a problem with his prostrate.
He has to wear diapers. Disposable diapers are expensive in Guatemala.  His family cannot afford them. He doesn't have anyone who would wash cloth diapers for him.  The last few weeks he has had to wear pieces of a rough fabric from bags that hold corn and rice. 
This is very uncomfortable for him.  
We appreciate any donations for  disposable diapers for adults. 
Please consider sponsoring an elderly person to be able to eat one meal a day.
Contact  or make a donation donation is to will help..
