One of the things I love most is visiting different Rotary Clubs to talk about our work in Guatemala. Here are pictures from my visit to the Rotary Club of Lodi.
This is the time of year that we should reflect back on what we are thankful for. Our latest newsletter highlights some of the things Amigos de Guatemala is thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving.

During the food distribution last year, we realized the impact of not having a food pantry or community garden to help those without land to grow crops. So many have food insecurities and even more so now between the drought, hurricanes and pandemic. Amigos de Guatemala has been able to secure land for a community garden that the scholarship students are able to farm for their families. Any extra produce will go to the elderly. The land is being prepped for planting.
One of our scholarship students lives in a house that is constantly compromised. It is along a steep cutout. When it rains, the water runs through the house causing damage to the structure and the family’s health. A caring supporter helped underwrite the cost of creating diversion walls so that the water will flow around the house and not through it.
