Thank You!

On February 25, we had the pleasure of welcoming a team from Canada. We were so pleased with their hard work and the support they provided to Loving Arms and the families in the community.

They started the construction of our 3rd grade classroom, did a shoe and clothing

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!

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
