My name is Manichanh, my friends and I are passionate about our global community. In addition to providing services locally, we also travel to one of the poorest neighborhoods in Guatemala. Help us on November 18th @ The Yakima Sports Center!

My name is Manichanh, I am a part of a small group of health care workers whom are dedicated to improving lives of those less fortunate. In addition to assisting locally, we also travel to one of the poorest neighborhoods in Guatemala where we support The School of Hope  and Rekko Clinic.

We are making our annual trip to Jocotenango, Guatemala in September 2017.  We support a program that improves the lives of hundreds of improverished children. We cover our own travel and all associated expenses. We are asking you to help us raise funds for this school so that the children can obtain medical care at local clinics and hospitals. We continue to work with a local clinc and strengthen those ties. All funds go directly towards the cost of medical care. 

In 2016 fundraiser we raised $7,745.00, $1,235 more than the goal! The projected expenses for  medical care (including hospitalization, consults, labs, x-rays, scans, medicines, transportation, etc) for 2017 equates to $789.31 per month or $9471.73 for the whole year. After we deducted the $1,235 "excess" we raised last year, the total goal for 2017 is $8,400. This puts us just past the financial goal.

The reason for the increase in the budget this year is:

  •           The Quetzal has strengthened substantially compared to the USD, previously it was 7.75/1, now it is down to 7.3/1.
  •           Over the last year we have increased our numbers to 679 students across the Foundation.

On November 18, 2017 we are hosting a fundraiser at the Yakima Sports Center. We will be sharing our stories while hosting a silent auction, having a split the pot or 50/50 (winner took home almost $200 last year!) and games. Please help us with this fundraiser that will enable hundreds of impoverished children obtain access to healthcare.

We support children and their future. People (specifically children) are the best investment. In order to improve a population you need empowerment and independence. The proven form has been education. These children face countless socioeconomic and psychological barriers. A holistic approach is required to improve longterm outcomes. What these children face on a near daily basis makes all of our life obstacles seem pity. The staff and volunteers provide long term commitment. They genuinely care and love the community in which they are empowering. They sacrifice so much for others. This is a long term and sustainable commitment. They aren't going anywhere unless these socioeconomic issues are resolved.

If you are able, please help us and help spread the word. Any donation is greatly appreciated. These children are combating extreme poverty and many face inhuman conditions. This school provides a safe haven where they can break the cycle of poverty. All donations go directly to medical cost and does not cover any administration fees. We have never needed as much support as we are asking for this year. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Please consider a donation by clicking the provided button. 

Please contact me direclty with any questions or concerns. We will provide a list of auction items as things progress. 

Best to you all!
