Continuing the Support in Guatemala

The Grandparents waiting
The Grandparents waiting

This week we were back up in the community to hand out food parcels to the grandparents and this time in the community San Andres Itzapa, we added fruit trees to their parcel! Each grandparent received five pounds of rice, ten pounds of sugar, loads of porridge and an apple and peach tree to plant ready for next years fruit.

To tie in with or educational aims in the community the grandparents of children who attend the school regularly are the ones to receive the parcels, this gathering also serves as an opportunity to bring everyone from the community together which is always very useful.

The hand out was great and went without a hitch, thank you so much to all donors to the project who help us to continue this support.

Plan Ancianos expanded into a new communities

Recently, we have doubled our reach to the elderly in Guatemala by expanding into another community, so now around 250 families from this scheme. The elderly receive a basic food parcel, with all the essentials like cooking oil, sugar, rice, pastas, mosh (a liquid breakfast containing iron, calcium, vitamins etc) every three months. A huge success, though they only receive the parcel if the children go to school, so basically, the children earn the food package, a great system for responsibility. Many thanks to everyone

The Plan Ancianos has been a huge success this year, with over 100 famlies benefitting from the scheme. Each month they have received their parcels of oil, rice, pasta, soap and other useful items. In 2010, we plan to roll out the plan in another community aswell, instantly doubling the size of the scheme, though the benefits are showing, with the younger children now eating a bit more, as the older generation have their food as part of the Plan Ancianos. Thank you to all our donors who make this possible. Happy New Year cheers

More old poeple and better school assistance

The old people's plan has continued on its monthly path, and the results are being seen, with better fed "ancianos" and more children being at school every day. The Plan Semillas scheme has born its first harvest of the year and more products for the old poeple will be shared out later this month.

The elderly continue to receive nourishment

Since my last entry, the elderly have continued to receive their food parcels, and in return, as promised, the children keep coming to school; of course, they want to, though the added filip that their grandparents receive food due to this can only help! Plans are being put into action to open another Old People's Plan, to include fruit trees, seeds and chickens. I will keep you updated. Many thanks for all your support. cheers Dom
