It is my pleasure to have spent one month out of two years volunteering for Mayan Families. Their staff is very capable, and helpful, and they all serve to work toward one goal: To provide food, education, clothing, health care, and just about any service they can provide to help the poor people around the mountains and Lake Attitlan in the Panajachel, Guatemala area. I saw first hand children getting fit with shoes that they badly needed. I saw children being educated in a clean, joyful, healthful setting. I saw food being delivered to needy families. I saw the Doctor who works at the main site who takes care of health issues. I saw little ones getting flouride treatments and new toothbrushes. I saw teachers who were interested in helping young children learn to appreciate books. Their staff is well organized, helpful, friendly, and care a lot about helping people. You couldn't ask for a better staff.
