Team Update – November 2017

Here's the latest on what our most recent volunteer team has been up to on their trip down to Guatemala! The team's first event was to attend the graduation of the kindergartners to Grade 1. It was an eye opening day at the Centre of Hope where each graduate had multiple family members on hand to celebrate their big day with them. It was also a chance for Loving Arms President Linda Coghlin and Guatemalan Director Alicia Mendez to acknowledge the

Thank You!

Loving Arms would like to thank the team of Barb, Jeff, Fern, Leslie Ann, Cindy, and Tamara. During their time in Guatemala, they helped set up health clinics for locals, medical workshops for nursing students, as well as participating in our adopt-a-home program. Their hard work was not unnoticed as they aided more sick people per nurse than any other medical team we've ever had! We only had three nurses in the clinics while others worked in the

It was a bit more of a slow day, but in a good way we got time to spend

November 20th, 2013 – Day 2

Hola los amigos de Brazos Amorosos!!! Today was our second day here in Guatemala. We woke up a little earlier than yesterday because we had our first medical clinic at 8:30. We went to a new place that our group had never been to before, San Lorenzo. In the beginning of the clinic we were quite slow taking our time but turns out there were so many families with small children waiting for over an hour to see us, we had to start seeing the patients
