Guatemala Sponsorship Update, November 2014

Sponsored Children and Families Visit the Center!

It is that time of the month again! Our precious little ones who have left the center returned for their monthly visit this week! All of the children who are being sponsored were able to come back to the malnutrition center and receive a food basket and get a check-up with the doctor while their parents received some advice and training!

On Tuesday we had a special meeting with all of the sponsor kids' parents. In the meeting we reinforced what the sponsorship program is about. We explained that the reason we want to see their children healthy and well, is because we care about them so much! 

We talked about their roles as parents and caregivers, and answered any questions they had about the program.

Gloria, our social worker, taught the parents how to make a vitamin based meal using the nutrient rich powder that is provided in their monthly food baskets. This is a gift that each family receives as a direct result of your sponsorship monies each month!

We had some newly sponsored kids come to the meeting, and it was amazing to see how well they are doing! A few of them we hadn't seen in over 3 years! God is good! 

After the meeting, all of them received their November food basket. Scroll through these photos to see some of the beautiful, happy, and healthy faces we encountered!

PLEASE NOTE: Some children didn't come on Tuesday because they live farther away; for those special cases, parents will come every three months to pick up a a food basket with 3 months worth of supplies inside.

If you are interested in becoming a child sponsor, we strongly encourage you to pray about it and get in touch with Orphan's Heart for more information! Call: (863) 577-4488 or email
