Updates From Guatemala

The Hospital Construction Continues!

In February 2020, the second floor of the new Hospital was poured and then by the end of the year, the electrical was completed as well! The most recent update on the new Hospital is that the flooring has arrived and will be installed in a couple of weeks! How exciting!

Strong & Selfless Teachers in Huehuetenango

As Guatemala was immensely impacted by Covid-19 within the last year, teachers in Huehuetenango agreed to continue teaching their classes even if it meant receiving only 15% of their regular salary. Above are photos of teachers from 3 different schools that we support in Guatemala. These teachers share their gratitude for the financial support that you have provided to help pay for their salaries so that education can continue! Thank you for your ongoing support for Guatemala!

Urgent Need Of A New Ultrasound Machine

The Old Ultrasound Machine

About 3 weeks ago, Juan Pablo told us about the urgent need for an Ultrasound Machine as the current one in the Hospital that is being used is in really bad shape as they use it almost every single day. Carolina said that it isn’t working well and soon, it won’t be working at all and that will be a big problem.

The goal is to raise $37,500 as soon as possible to replace this machine so that the hospital can continue to provide the quality health care that the community expects when they come to the hospital!

So far, we’ve been able to raise about $19,000 which means we are more than halfway to our goal but still need $18,500!

Would you consider supporting this cause and help us purchase a new Ultrasound Machine so that the Hospital can continue to provide quality health care?

Peacemaking initiatives in Kenya are important as they provide a platform for dialogue, reconciliation and healing for people affected by conflict and violence. We are so grateful to Nigerian Ph.D. Dr. Dorcas Ettang, a Senior Lecturer in Conflict Transformation and Peace Studies Programme at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, for willing to provide solutions to some of the challenges KEDHAP is facing in their tribal peacemaking initiatives.

The event was held online on April 29, 2023. The audio recording is available in this blog post.

This Mother’s Day, would you like to change a child’s life by filling it with hope? Love starts with YOU!
