A busy day at the Mayan Families Clinic

This week we have been doing evaluations on the children who are in the milk program and the Incaparina program (cereal ). 

They came to our small clinic run by Dr. Louis de Pena....and he weighed, measured and examined them for health problems.

It was a great relief for the mothers to be able to discuss problems or concerns that they have about their children.

Our small clinic relies totally on donations. The clinic is open Monday to Friday to 5p.m. .   We have some medicines that are donated but usually any medicine that is needed like antibiotics has to be purchased.

One way we support the clinic is by suggesting that you may want to honor a loved one by sponsoring a day at the clinic.  It is just $60 US to sponsor a day's medicine at the clinic ....and a poster with a photo of your loved one is put on the wall of the clinic ....we take a photo of that poster and send it to you .

This is a great way to honor a loved one ...and to help a lot of people in need at the same time! 
If you are interested in doing this...or if you would like just to make a donation to the clinic...please write to or to donate go to
