ABroaderView's insight:

Abroaderview Donations Guatemala Xela, Elderly Care Center Program. Most of the residents have no other living options. Some have been abandoned by their own family. The home provides these ladies, free of charge, a place to live, meals, clothing, medical treatment and therapy needs. Since most woman in Latin American culture are the back bone of the family, they deserve to live their life with dignity and in a happy environment. *This program can be combined with the medical projects, as volunteers are needed to provide health checks like checking blood pressures, sugar levels, administering medication and physical therapy needs.

Personal Paragraph (ABV Program Testimonial):

When I was in Guatemala, the ABV staff treated me with kindness, compassion and love. I will always be grateful that they were in my life while I was here.

How would you describe your accommodation, meals, security (e: host family, on-site, shared)

They were great! I had a room to myself and the host mom treated me like one of her own. I always felt safe and secure, and was overly fed, which was awesome!
