Thanks to all the families that donated hygiene items for the people of San Miguel, Guatemala. We distributed much needed supplies to over 300 families. Our team built a home for a struggling family and I was able to work with the beautiful children in the village.
A highlight of the trip was helping to build solar lanterns. Students from Preston middle school prepared the components. Our team transported the parts and assisted with the assembly. Families were also provided solar chargers for their lanterns. Since the homes don’t have electricity, the families were thrilled to construct their lanterns. Women of the village shared their basket making skills. It was a wonderful experience and opportunity to converse in Spanish.
