First Team of the New Year

Today our first team of 2013 will arrive in Guatemala. It is a large group from St. Joe's College in Maine. The nursing students will be working in the clinic seeing patients and doing some well-child checkups for our sponsored kids. They will also be running a children's program for 150 kids each day at the school in the village. And a construction team will be starting an emergency house for a family of 8 and a bathroom to be shared among four families who currently use the river as their bathroom. It is going to be a busy week, but a lot will get done!

This is where the family of 8 is currently living - a small room made with plastic tarps on the side of their grandmother's house
