Best smiles ever!

Despite their struggles, this mother and daughter always have the best smiles to share!  Many seniors in Guatemala live with very little in their lives. This 87-year-old mother is supported in her home by her 60-year old daughter who earns approximately $34 per month weaving fabric.  It is not enough to cover their household expenses never mind put food on the table.   Fortunately, this mother has a monthly sponsor who ensures that she receives food every month that is shared with her daughter.  They make it stretch so that every day there is something to eat.

These seniors have no extra resources and there is no social network to ensure they receive medical treatment, have safe housing or household basics.  FundaMaya Canada has an Emergency Medical Fund and an Emergency Food Fund.  Unfortunately, the demand for both is high and these funds are quickly depleted.

Please consider a contribution to either fund so that we can make medical resources available or supplement their food and put those smiles on the faces of other elders in need.

Donations may be made by clicking on 'Donate' on the menu at the top or by e-transfer to  Please note it is for Emergency Medical or Emergency Food.
