BENEFITING: MAP International
A group of middle school kids and their parents (from Fairfield, CT) and several teachers left Guayaquil, Ecuador several hours before the quake hit on Saturday April 16th. During our visit, we saw firsthand the fragile nature of developing and less developed communities there. Mothers and fathers are learning how to change behaviors that will lead to better childhood development. Any additional hardship created by this disaster could set back those efforts, impacting many children...who are every bit as precious as yours and ours. Please consider giving something...any amount...to help these communities through this disaster. The funds will be channeled through MAP International, who we worked with on our visit to install water filtration systems in two villages just last week. MAP will ensure that the donations benefit villages most in need of support. Thank you!
