We are committed to helping orphans around the world. Hope to Home is raising funds for orphanages in other countries to improve the children’s living quarters, and provide love and necessities they deserve. Once a year we will choose a different country to sponsor.
We are proud to announce Guatemala as our first selected country. Through 2010 we will work to raise funds for Orphan Resources International.
Orphan Resources International is a not-for-profit organization. They provide aid to 40 orphanages in Guatemala, with the vision to expand to other Latin American countries. They provide over 10 tons of food a month to the 40 orphanages they support.
One of the ways they show the children of Guatemala love is by improving their living conditions. They take food, clothes, toys, and work crews into the orphanages to do construction and remodeling projects and make sure they have time to give plenty of love.
The needs of just this one country, Guatemala, are staggering. The number of orphans is increasing daily due to the current hold on inter-country adoptions and the state of the economy. This has created a larger need for financial support.
