Happy spring! Here at Mayanza, we are busy preparing to return to Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala in July. We are excited to work with the families of the school communitiies of 4 schools that we partner with. We plan to see approximately 600 children and provide a variety of services to improve the health of these children.
Every six months we return to provide dental screening, fluoride varnish, and anti-worming medications, as well as measuring growth and supporting our health educator, Lola. Every child that we see gets their very own toothbrush, toothpaste and soap.
In February, we piloted two new programs, Women's Diabetes Lifestyle Modification Program and Oral Health Treatment for the Children of Santiago. We are looking forward to talking to the participants of these programs for feedback.
Please consider supporting our return trip in July! Every donation goes directly toward our work in Guatemala and improving the health of the school communities that we serve.
