She sponsors a little girl called Maria (age 10) in Guatemala and now has the opportunity to visit her and her family in September.
The trip is organised by Adopt A Child and Living Water International. Together these 2 charities have created 8 projects in Guatemala (and 7 in Albania) to help poor/vulnerable children to receive schooling, healthcare, a hot meal and bible study on approximately 3 days a week.
Adopt A Child supports 11,000 children and their families in this way and Fiona also has the opportunity to visit all 8 projects during her stay in Guatemala.
On her JustGiving page Fiona says:
“I will meet my adopted “God-daughter” for the first time and will be taking lots of presents for her and her family. This is an experience in itself that I am thoroughly excited about! I will also spend time with other children and staff in all of the programmes learning about their culture and needs so that I continue to raise awareness and funds for them when I return home.”
As well as fund raising for Adopt A Child, Fiona is also using her Volunteer Time allowance for her visit :)
