Man receiving pantry supplies on his 90th birthday
We hope this update finds you well. To date, generous donations have enabled us to provide over 445 families with emergency pantry supplies packs. Most recently we handed out 28 pantry supplies packs in the community of Santiago Sacatepequez. One of the recipients was a man celebrating his 90th birthday. What a great way to celebrate his day! In this message you can find some of the photos from that day. You can find the full album with most of the deliveries we have made to date through this link here:
While we have enjoyed being a vehicle to bring pantry supplies to people during times of great need these past few months, all good things must come to an end. All over Guatemala we are adjusting to a new normal. When we first started this project it was in response to the necessary closure of all the non-essential activities in the country which made hunger a threat equal to the threat of coronavirus.

The president plans for an update at the end of the month regarding whether or not things will remain open or be shut down again. We are hoping that the country will be in a good state and that the economy will remain open and will start to regain momentum. In that event, we plan to close down this project in order to focus our efforts on our other great developing projects, including addressing the major gaps in education during these times of the pandemic. We invite you to check out the new project we have been developing in reaction to the fact that more than 40,000 children across the country have abandoned their education during the pandemic. This project involves traveling, hands on, educational exhibits to reengage children's learning while they have fun and recover from the psychological effects of months of lockdown. We go where the need is, and this is where we are currently being called:
