Humberto, Mario, Carlos and Alejandro will be in their own home

for Christmas.  They are so excited to have their own home.

Thank you to those of you who sponsored this project.

The guys built a concrete walkway so that Maria can

push his wheelchair to the street.

Canadian Troop….

•November 6, 2017 • Leave a Comment

The Canadian team of 6 arrived to help construct a home for Humberto,

Maria and their two sons.  The second floor was completed, wiring and

plumbing were installed.  The walls were mudded, floor poured and

a short concrete patio was poured.

 

What a difference we have seen in Humberto in the last month.

Maria works his physio every day.  He wheeled into the house

and gave us a two thumbs up when we asked him if he liked

it.  We will purchase a new bed for them, mattresses for the

bunk beds for the boys, and a few shelves for both levels.

Thank you to Fredene, Norm, Monty, Barb, Wayne and Diana

for all the wheelbarrows of sand, gravel and dirt.  For all the

tiring and hot days that you worked so hard to help finish

the house…..bless you.

The clinic day in Chimixiya….lots of amoebas (little critters that live

in your intestines, not good).  Love Guatemala Canada did hand out

15 eco water filters but many do not have access to pure water.

The moms of our sponsored students provided us with a great lunch of

hot soup (it was cold, windy and rainy all day).

The second and third clinics were held in Jocotenango.

The City staff had set up enclosures for each doctor…great privacy.

They also provided the intake people to take their information.

And we were assigned 4 police persons.

High Blood Pressure and Diabetics, foot problems were high on the list of problems.
