Dear Friends and Supporters,

It has been an exciting few months in Guatemala for Child Nutrition! We are also excited to announce that on October 19, GlobalGiving.org is matching all online donations at 30% up to $1000 per donor per project!

Thanks to your support, we now have 5 communities receiving comprehensive nutrition and medical care utilizing Plumpydoz! We have already had seen some successes, after just a few short months, with decreases in diarrhea and other illnesses in the recipient children. Of course we are following their growth closely and expect to see results there as well. 

Last week we sponsored a conference “Collective Futures" (http://en.futuroscolectivos.com/) in Guatemala bringing together 80 international non-profits, regional organizations, and government agencies to address major issues in community development. One focus of the conference was working together to fight child malnutrition in creative and practical ways. Our partners at Edesia (the manufacturers of Plumpydoz) gave an excellent talk on the use of the product to a packed room of health promoters, scholars and community members representing several countries and many regions of Guatemala.  

We hope that you will continue to support this exciting work! In particular, don't forget that on October 19, GlobalGiving.org is matching all online donations at 30% up to $1000 per donor per project! There is $100,000 available in matching funds from 12:01am EDT until they run out! You have been the most generous of supporters and we wanted to invite you to take advantage of the generous matching funds from Global Giving to help stretch every precious dollar! We know the economy is difficult right now and we are extremely thankful for each dollar you can provide to help change the future for children in Guatemala!

Please feel free to contact me at any time peter@wuqukawoq.org or check out our webpage www.wuqukawoq.org.

Thank you for Being the Change in these children’s lives!
