SAFE HOMES FOR CHILDREN/CASA DE SION is a private non-profit organization that puts food in the mouths and clothes on the backs of children in the most impoverished parts of Guatemala. My husband and his family are from Guatemala, which is why this particular charity is special to our family. We have donated hand-sewn blankets, school supplies and money. Donated funds are used for many beneficial programs including:
Mothers & Tots Feeding Program provides neonatal supplements, infant formula and incaparina (a nutritional supplement) to mothers and their young children.
Afterschool Program not only provides school-aged children with a nutritious meal and English classes, but also distributes much needed shoes, clothing and medical/dental care.
Scholarship Program allows many children to attend school who might otherwise not be able to afford an education or who may have to work to help support their families.
Medical/Dental Care - Medical and dental practitioners often volunteer their time to visit local communities and provide basic care. Often more urgent medical attention is needed and donated funds helps pay for transportation to hospitals, surgery, and advanced care.
Clothes & Shoes Distribution - Used items that are donated are distributed to those who need them the most. School supplies, cook ware, blankets and other items are also needed.
For more information, contact Erin Sanofsky via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 801-372-2425. Safe Homes for Children is a U.S 501-c-3 Non-Profit Organization. Donations are fully tax deductible. 100% of your contribution goes in-country to Guatemalan Programs. There is no overhead.
