Sabina

Sabina A0051, lives in a house made of adobe with a dirt floor. She does not even have a proper bed, she sleeps on a piece of cardboard laid over the coils of an old metal frame. She has no water in her house and must carry water from the community pump. Because of her advanced age and declining health, she is no longer able to work and cannot support herself.

Sabina will be spending her Christmas like she spends every day, alone in her dark home, sleeping on cardboard. Then a few days later on December 28th, she will spend her 75th birthday doing the same.

Sabina has many needs including: a water filter, food, blankets, a pila, and medicine. However her biggest need right now is a proper bed, mattress, and a pillow. We would love to be able to provide her with a bed so that she has somewhere comfortable to sleep for Christmas and her birthday this year. Sabina is also available for sponsorship for our Elderly Care Program, to ensure that she is able to receive a hot, nutritious meal every day.

If you are interested in donating a bed to Sabina as a life-changing Christmas or Birthday present you can go to our donation page and choose to send a gift, using Sabina's id number A0051.

If you are intersted in sponsoring Sabina for our Elderly Care Program you can go to our donation page and you will find Sabina under our "Sponsor an Elderly Person" tab.

DISCOVER THE JOY OF GIVING GUATEMALAN STYLE
  
In Guatemala, Christmas is celebrated in humble fashion; a dinner of tamales with family and close friends.  However, for a struggling Guatemalan family, even purchasing and preparing this traditional dinner can be outside of their reach.   

The joy of receiving a gift is an even less realistic expectation for many of the wonderful people we work with-many of whom have never received an education and cannot depend on steady work.  

Mayan Families would like to offer you the opportunity to provide the gift of feeling specialand loved to a person in great need.  Please join us in helping boost the spirits of a person in  need, and consider giving a gift from the following options:
