March 1, 2018 – February Team Update

Tuesday was a phenomenal day. One of the barriers to education for young women is having to deal with their menstrual cycle. Our volunteer Marg teamed up with the Charity Days for Girls and coordinated and funded the making of 115 menstrual kits. Loving Arms arranged two meetings of 50 women each. As a result, 100 women and girls would go out into the community with knowledge that will improve lives. Find out more about how Loving Arms wants to celebrate

February 28th, 2018 – Day 1 Team Update

On the first day our February team member Marg held a sewing class for some of the local women who quickly learned how to make the bag you see in the pictures below. These bags are made of Guatemalan fabric and Loving Arms hopes to be able to sell these bags so that the family can make some income! The ladies were quick learners and we even had a helper from our kindergarten class with us as well!

Merry Christmas!

On behalf of everyone at Loving Arms, I would like to extend the warmest Christmas greetings to you and your families. Thank you to everyone who gave their time to make volunteer trips to Guatemala; to those who helped us put together fundraising events, to those who donated, sponsored children, purchased Guatemalan handmade goods (or all three!), and everyone else in between. Without your generosity we wouldn't have been able to make 2017 as special

Thank You!
