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.

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 been in contact with the Safe Homes for Children for a little while now and will be volunteering with them this summer to help with gardening efforts. They are very enthusiastic people who have been doing great work for people truly in need of their help. I am excited to work with their organization and work more closely to these inspiring people.

I have watched Safe Homes for Children grow each year to help so many children. Not only do they feed, cloth and provide medical services, but they educate the children and teach them how to succeed in life, so the cycle of poverty they come from can end with them.

This is a small organization run by a family. vicki Dalia has done so much for each individual child and family that she assists through her organization. She and her husband work directly with the local people and have employed as many as they could in the facility so that they could get a better income for their families.
Most importantly, the donations they receives from others are complitely used to support the feeding program for mom and babies and other projects. This is again a small and very efficient group.
I am looking forward to go directly to Gatemala and work in Casa de Sion as a volunteer this Spring.

I was lucky enough to travel to Guatemala and volunteer at the orphanage last summer. This orphanage is located in such a small village and it was amazing to see how much good they were able to do with limited means. Their work is amazing!

In early 2010 I went to their orphanage site in Guatemala with a group of about 15 people. My job, during the week we were there, was to supervise and help build an 8' X 32' metal chicken coop on their property. We managed to complete it. The second day after we left the property a typhoon blew in and literally destroyed all the native homes within miles of the site. The only buildings left standing were the main building and the chicken coop so for about three weeks the chicken coop was home to three complete families seeking shelter while they tried to rebuild their corn stalk walled shelters with a piece of tin for the roof.

These people do an amazing job in helping the really poor mothers and babies in highland Guatemala. They are modern day saints.

Casa de Sion saves lives. It is an organization that ensures that mothers and infants have enough food to remain healthy. It is important for the mothers to remain healthy so that they can meet the needs of their infants. The infants need proper nutrition so that they can avoid some of the devastating and life-long effects of malnutrition during infancy. This non-profit is the only one I am aware of where 100% of the money raised goes to the feeding program. There are no administrative costs that go toward salaries of administrators. That is a wise investment of my charity donations!

Our family donates to the mamas and babies program. We have young children and sharing with them about where some of our money goes and what it does helps my 4 year old learn about the world around her and the responsibility we all have to help each other. she loves to look at the photo we have of one of the families we are helping and explain to us why we need to help them have food.

I know one of the directors of the project and I have another charity I run in Guatemala. I have seen the work being done for these children and their mothers and this is a fantastic cause that truly is making a difference in lives and is well deserving of all the help they can get.

I spent four days in Guatemala in February 2011 and was very impressed with the work Casa de Sion is doing to help educate mothers on the care of their babies in an effort to inspire the mothers to keep their children rather than abandon them. Casa de Sion provides 200 meals five days a week to children so they will have at least one hot nourishing meal on school days. The program is stable, loving, and educational for long time success.

In college, I lived next door the the daughter of the owners of this orphanage. She showed me pictures of all of her adopted siblings from Guatemala, as well as the other orphans still at the orphanage. This family purs 100% of their donations into this charity that they started, as well as countless hours of their own time and their own finances. I have followed the blog for years and tried to visit a couple times. Although I have not been able to personally visit, Safe Homes for Children Casa de Sion has remained in my heart and prayers.
