Improving Life for Kids in Guatemala One Step at a Time

A few months back we shared the need for a sponsor to help support Corazon de los Niños, a school and community center in Antigua led by our friend Lillian.  We are still looking for corporate support to keep the community center going - but we were excited that donations through Greenlight Giving were recently used to provide a bunch of the kids at Corazon De Los Ninos with new shoes.

It seems like a small thing, but a pair of shoes that fits well can make a huge difference in the life of a child living in poverty. These kids need to walk to school, to the market, really everywhere. Walking barefoot leaves them susceptible to injury and infection, and with limited access to medical care, a minor injury can lead to a long, painful recovery.

We are excited to see the happy faces of these kids sporting their new shoes and thank all of you who made the donations that made it possible.

Our next trip to visit the kids in Antigua is coming up in less than 30 days, we hope to use your generous donations to make more "steps" toward a brighter future for them!
