Humanitarian Holiday 2015
“My family traveled to Guatemala with Mayan Families Canada in 2007. I will never forget the experience. We installed fuel efficient/ventilated stoves in homes, handed out chickens to families who could then sell eggs, and distributed all kinds of donated items we’d brought down from Canada in our suitcases. We were welcomed into the homes of the Mayan families and even shown how to cook tortillas on the new stoves. We practiced our poor Spanish with the vendors at the town market and played soccer with the local school children. We learnt that being poor didn’t necessarily mean being unhappy and that things we take for granted as “needs” aren’t as important as we think they are. We learnt that something as simple as a serviceable pair of shoes can light up the face of a child, and knowing that the air in her home is clean and healthy for her children can bring a mother to tears. It was a heart warming and life changing experience that I would recommend to everyone.”
Does this sound like something you've thought about in the past but just didn't know how to go about it or didn't think it was possible? Here is your opportunity to help make a difference.
