Spring into Action for GVH: Week 2
April 7, 2020
We are thrilled to report in our first week of online fundraising we have received $11,360 (over 15% of our $75,000 goal!) So far we have 8 monthly donors signed up. GVH is so grateful to have this support from our donors. And we ask that you please join this effort!
This week we have a video from Dr. Jennifer Hoock, Co-Founder of GVH, describing our nutritional supplements program that supports 209 children and recent updates about keeping villagers safe. And below are a few photos sent by our in-country director, Samuel Alvarez, when he delivered the nutrition supplies last week to Esperanza Tunico where our head health promoter Julio Choc Xo lives. Julio (who appears in the photos with his son) will be delivering the nutritional supplements to the villages in the hills above Lake Izabal.
And the final note for this week, we encourage all of our donors to please sign up with Guatemala Village Health for AmazonSmile - as many folks are purchasing more and more on Amazon these days! By selecting Guatemala Village Health as your charity, Amazon will contribute a small percentage of every purchase you make to GVH, at no additional cost to you. Please follow the link here for easy to follow instructions. And when you shop start by logging in at smile.amazon.com
