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
