Poor Curly Sue was hit by a car a few days ago and brought to us by the traffic police in Panajachel. Tossed into the back of a pick­up, little Curly came to us shivering and whimpering. Fortunately for Curly, only one hind leg was affected and could be treated immediately the Vet 
that works with Mayan Families to augment the quality of life for these street dogs. However, these kinds of incidents are all too common, and while Mayan Families’ Hope for the Animal Program seeks to help all emergency cases, we are in need of emergency funds.

The cost of Curly Sue’s treatment and antibiotics was 45 US dollars­ something we are still struggling to pay. Please consider a donation to the emergency funds for the Hope for the Animals Program to help animals like Curly Sue in the future! http://bit.ly/1PBSPdH #HopeForAnimals #SaveDogs #Guatemala

Thanks to your help, many of the 'ancianas' from San Jorge have daily access to essential nutrition support in our San Jorge Feeding Center. They are very grateful and we thank you for contributing to save what represent a truly lifeline for elderly and kids in critical need. #Food #Ancianas #help #rural #Guatemala

How much do you know about extreme poverty?

Live #BelowtheLine is a challenge to spend just $1.50 a day on food & drink for 5 days fromApril 27th - May 1st, 2015. By taking part in the challenge, you are calling attention to the lack of choice and opportunity faced by 1.2 billion people living in extreme poverty. You are challenging yourself and others to think about #extremepoverty and about the choices you make every day.

Get involved! #Itshappening

Healthy children have the power to lift themselves and their families out of extreme poverty. They get better grades and have more energy and strength to secure a better future. 

That's why every child in each of our Preschool Nutrition Centers receives a daily snack, meal, vitamins and necessary medical care to ensure they are growing up strong. 

And that's why so many people have already donated or signed up to live #belowtheline to support our efforts. There's still time - you have until June 30th to participate and join us to take action! Learn more and sign up here: http://bit.ly/1B8jJww
