Urgent! 2017 camps need funding!

Hi friends and supporters of Viamistad-- camps for people with disabilities in Guatemala.

I have refrained from bothering you with this plea the whole year, and now we urgently need the help!  First there was the new "president", and lots of other important causes to give to, and then there were a series of natural and manmade disasters... it's been a tough year.

We have lost three beloved members of our camp family this year:  Rodney, Esteban, and Diego, all under 25 years old.  It has been such a tough year!

In good news, for our Individual Project, we sponsored Osiel Martinez to start up his own internet cafe in his home town, and he is now up and running on his way to financial independence!  That project cost about $2500.

We are really looking forward to the three camps this year!  As we have gradually become more well-known in Guatemala, I am now inundated with calls from parents and organizations who want to send their loved ones with severe disabilities to this amazing experience.

Each camper (WITH their one-on-one volunteer counselor) costs $400 to send to camp.

Please watch this video which best explains what we do and how important it is!

Please consider sponsoring a camper for $400.  Or, of course, ANY donation is welcome and needed!  

Viamistad is a registered 501c3 charity organization, so your donations are tax deductible.

Our camps are entirely funded by private donations like yours.  We really could not do it without you.
