We are so excited to show you what is happening at El Amor.  We will be sending a few email blasts to outline what we have been doing throughout this past year. There will be stories about the water project in Yalu, the school, the kids, and our feeding programs. We will follow up with a Fund a Need email after it is all over. There will be opportunities to make tax-deductible contributions throughout the campaign as well. 

El Amor has missed our visitors and teams again this past year. It has been a rough couple of years for the entire world with this pandemic. However, we have managed to sustain our programs throughout this uncertain time.  

It was an absolute privilege for El Amor de Patricia to have partnered with the Municipality of Sumpango, the people of Yalu and the COCODE (local leaders) to bring potable water to all the homes in Yalu. This project broke ground in November 2021. On March 4, 2022 we celebrated the completion of this life changing project. Our staff in Guatemala was able to help make this project happen because of the unwavering support and trust of our supporters and donors. There are not adequate words to describe this day of watching families turn on their faucet to bring water to their homes FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME. El Amor de Patricia is incredibly grateful to be able to work alongside the beautiful people of Yalu and make this dream come true.

Next, we started building our library as we work through the long and arduous process of becoming a certified school.  We will tell you all about it in the coming days.

Lastly, the kids at El Amor's children's home are thriving.  Since the kids have not been able to leave El Amor much, the nannies brought the outside in.  Since the fair didn't come to town, the staff created one right at El Amor.  They held their own Olympics, school plays, and even Santa came to visit. 

We have over twenty kids doing school at home while the government has closed all schools.  It is amazing to watch them in action.  Focused and quiet.  I was blown away when I witnessed this on my trip down in May. 

It is an honor to work among these amazing people at El Amor. They are the most dedicated hard-working people I know. 

All this beauty would not happen without the support of all of you.  Thank you for joining us for yet another annual fundraising campaign!!!
