A Tale of Two Sisters - Kept Together and Loved
See this picture book showing the beautiful story of two sisters that show how the kids at the Fatima Childrens' Home are cared for, loved and respected as members of the family, Permanently or Temporarily.
"These little angels came to Fatima Children's home with "Baby Bottle Tooth Decay" - it is common in Guatemala and often caused by prolonged exposure to drinks with sugar, likely bottles full of sugar water they survived on. The older sister had to have nearly all of her baby teeth removed and received dental implants. After her teeth were fixed her speech became so much clearer! Her younger sister also needs her teeth removed and dental implants, but the procedure is very expensive and we did not have enough time to save up the money before she was reunified with her family (February 28, 2018) to complete it. We have another little angel with us now who will need the same procedure and who will likely be with us for a long time, so she is our next priority. Thanks to our kind donors we are able to offer these girls love, health and much needed dental work."

A refrigerator at Luz de Maria
When we first visited Luz de Maria, the director told us they did not have a refrigerator to keep food for then 32 children at the orphanage. With your donations, we were able to provide them with funds to purchase a refrigerator. Can you imagine having 32 children in your home with no refrigerator in a very hot climate?
