Charity Challenge #4 completed
Our work in Guatemala wasn't affected directly by the tragic recent volcanic eruption by Fuego; indirectly crops will be affected by the ash that fell in the region. For now, the incredible goodwill of the neighbouring local communities for those in San Miguel los Lotes, El Rodeo and others, aswell as the local emergency services, highlight that basic humanitarianism is alive and well in Guatemala.
The sustainable plans that we have been implementing these past years continue to provide benefits for the elderly population, especially with Plan Moo which provides daily milk and future calves. A few years ago we handed out medicinal plants to the elderly population - these are now fully grown and they use them personally for ailments or sell them in the market to raise funds for other medicine or food. It has been a huge success.
Our annual Seven Continent Charity Challenge #4 which raises funds for all our projects across Guatemala, Honduras, Ecuador and Perú was a huge success in May, biking, kayaking, hiking and “volcanoing” our way to Lake Atitlán in Guatemala, covering over 75kms. There is still time to support the cause by donating to this page and thank you!
A date for your diary for 2019: The Seven Continent Charity Challenge #5 will be the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu in Perú from 27-31st May – please contact us if you are interested on email@example.com . There are limited spaces so please let us know as soon as you can!
Have a fantastic June and we’ll be in touch in August with another update! Cheers
