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.

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

Blog Update – Monday, September 18th

Today we began taking medical clinics into the surrounding villages. It was quite an adventure. The morning clinic was to be held at a church which sits at the edge of a cliff in La Hermita. Unfortunately for a variety of reasons, and despite a back-up plan, we could not get a key to the church and so after an hour of waiting, the team ended up holding the clinic in the community leader’s house amidst chickens and hanging laundry. Fortunately,

Blog Update – Sunday, September 17th

Today was a heavenly day. We began with a visit to Valhalla Macadamia Nut Farm. In Viking mythology, Valhalla is akin to paradise or a heavenly home. The farm lived up to its name being both beautiful and peaceful -- a wonderful place for the team to rejuvenate after our first 3 days of travel and work. It was also very educational. Who knew that the Macadamia Nut tree flowers and produces fruit at the same time; or that it converts twice as
