In May 2016, Mary Sutphen and team, traveled from the United States and met up with Joshua Muñoz and family in Guatemala. They visited three orphanages to spend time with the children. There were activities such as coloring and stickers, basketball, manicures, soccer and a pizza party.
We also had the honor of working with an organization that works in the dump in Guatemala City. They opened a school at the dump for the children that live there with their families. The families, including the children, usually labor in the dump for up to 12 hours a day, scavenging for about $1 a day. This school is working towards breaking that cycle. We brought birthday cakes and piñatas to celebrate with the children who had birthdays over the past few months. For some of these children, it was the first time they had ever had a birthday cake. It was a truly wonderful experience.
