*HEALTH – EDUCATION – OPPORTUNITY*

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:
