COVID-19 PANDEMIC AUGUST UPDATE
As previously reported, we were able to reopen our healthcare clinic in Santa Maria in mid-June. We continue to see patients Monday through Friday from 8 am to 2 pm.
The school year in Guatemala runs from mid-January to mid-October; all public school classes have been cancelled for 2020. To help our preschoolers, we are providing weekly modified lesson plans with all supplies to the parents. They visit with our teacher on an individual basis each week to go over the plans so they can work with their children at home.
These people do not have internet or computers so while the situation is not ideal, at least the parents are trying and their children are happy to have some projects to work on.
Our library and dental services remain closed per the request of the Guatemalan government. We will keep you posted.
