Your donation can help SAVE LIVES…
DIABETES is common. 1/3 of the village of El Remate cannot access drinkable water and coca cola is cheaper than bottled water. Many children, who have been raised on soda pop, experience SEVERE health problems from being “sugar babies” (incl. mental problems).
The rate of ASTHMA is extremely high. Mothers hold their little ones close to wood burning stoves as they cook dinner, and children inhale major toxic pollutants, leading to terrible respiratory problems. You can help our medical clinic provide FREE MEDICINE to families in need.
If you are unable to attend and would like to donate in lieu of, PayPal donations are available.
Donations to our silent auction are GREATLY appreciated. For further information, Please contact:
Cecilia came to live in El Remate for a few months in late 2013 and early 2014, and we were very happy to have her join Margo to help with the afternoon program with the kids. Her time and her work with the kids is has been very much appreciated and we are sorry to see her time in the village come to an end. Thank you Cecilia!!
