Guatemala is deeply rooted in local traditions that make the celebration of Semana Santa (Easter week) an important and colorful celebration. The big event for Easter in Guatemala is a parade which was not held for the past 2 years due to Covid restrictions but was joyously celebrated this year! Children usually do not receive gifts at Easter but special food is prepared this time of year. With your generosity, the teachers and staff at the Acorn Childcare Center gifted each family traditional egg yolk breads and chocolate to be able to celebrate together.
Many of our families are struggling with unemployment, poverty, in addition to Covid illness and fears of contagion, and are doing their best to raise their children in the midst of these challenges. The little moments of celebration are so need to bring hope and joy to their lives. Thank you!
