On Monday, 8/28/17 and on Tuesday, 8/29/17, the 6o water filters that were purchased with the funds raised by our 5K Walk/Run on 8/5/17, were delivered to the 60 families of the special needs children that are receiving services through the Asociacion Vida in San Miguel Duenas. It must have been a special day as most of the recipients showed up in their best clothes. This is a common when Guatemalans come together for an important event. The smiles on their faces also tell the story! Imagine, after having very little or only expensive access to safe drinking water, that now you have, in your home, 8 years for potable water for just $3.50! What a blessing! No more worms, reduced cases of dysentery and cholera!! These filters are not just "nice to have" but are critical to good health and nutrition. We believe that those who receive services or items through Vida Para Todos Guatemala should have a buy in. This gives a sense of ownership. We are sorry that we could not be there for this special event and would have liked to have many of you join us. What those that participated in the 5K or otherwise helped to fund this project have done can not be understated. The families, Asociacion Vida and Vida Para Todos Guatemala want to thank each and everyone who made this day a reality. May you all be abundantly blessed by God.
