We are very close to starting this project and will be closing this fundraising appeal soon. Any last donations will help us to ensure the project can provide the best possible support to parents of young children with Down syndrome in Guatemala.
Since our last report we have finalised our Grant Agreement with Asociacion Guatemalteca para el Sindrome de Down and have reviewed their plan for the sessions.The plan is very comprehensive and covers all the essential areas that parents need, from emotional support to practical advice and guidance. We are very confident that the sessions will have the impact we planned and enable the families involved to provide the love and care that their children with Down syndrome need.
We will soon be ready to transfer them the money so they can begin supporting parents. Thank you to everyone who has donated to this project!
We have raised a fantastic 2,038, over half of our fundraising goal. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far!
We are very exciting to be getting closer to starting this project and supporting parents of children with Down syndrome in Guatemala.
We will be working with Asociacion Guatemalteca para el Sindrome de Down, a dedicated organisation based in Guatemala City. The organisation was founded in 2005 by Alfredo and Irene Salazar, after their son was born with Down syndrome. They sold their family home and used the funds to open a school providing support, education, therapies for children with Down syndrome in Guatemala.
If you haven't already, please consider donating again or sharing the project with your friends and family to help us reach our target and get the project started.
We are still raising funds for this project, slowly but surely! The money raised will be used for our important work supporting parents of children with Down syndrome in Guatemala.
We will soon be launching a new website and will be promoting this project on it, which we expect will help us to reach our target faster.
Thank you to everyone that has donated to this project! We will continue working hard to find the rest of the money. Please consider donating again or sharing the project with your friends and family to help us reach our target and get the project started.
We are now almost a third of the way to our target. Thanks to everyone who has donated so far!
This project is very important and we will carry on working to raise money for it. As soon as we reach our target we can begin supporting children with Down syndrome and their families in Guatemala. Support and information are hard to find for parents of children with Down syndrome in Guatemala, but this project will give them the help and guidance they need to provide their children with the best possible start to life.
To help us make progress towards starting this project, please consider donating again or sharing this project with friends, family and other people you know. Thank you for your support!
