My dtr volunteered for Casa de Sion for a month in October..she had a wonderful time and met many wonderful people. She cut up a lot of food! Cleaned a medical clinic and helped where she was able. These people are 100% trustworthy. Please feel free to donate to them !

I have not personally visited Guatemala But I have donated my time and effort to get the word out. I have heard stories and seen pictures of all the good that is done there. If I could and my Health good I would go in a heartbeat to give my time on site. I believe that this is what God intended when he said to "Feed my sheep" We at serving God by serving his children.

If I could change something about Safe Homes I would try to organize more ways for those that are being helped give back to the community and program and become more self sufficient.

Our 501(c)3, Pan En La Boca, has worked with Safe Homes for Children for several years. We have completed building projects for them and donated the funds to build the small health clinic on their property in Los Robles, Guatemala. We have also donated funds for other projects they have. We've worked closely with Vicki Dalia and know and have worked with some of her children. The family is dedicated to doing all they can do to help orphans and many other poverty-stricken people in Guatemala.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've personally experienced the results of this organization along with volunteers from my own organization as we have completed building projects for them, i.e. the new orphanage building, building furniture for the orphanage, building a huge chicken coop on the orphanage property to hold 100 chilckens that had been promised to them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not try to spread myself so thin. Vicki sees so many, many needs and wants to help everyone she possibly can.

Have not experienced the results firsthand but have talked with the organizers about the efforts and have heard accounts of other people directly touched by their hard work.
