Los Pinos Receives Juicy Donation

Friday, July 6th, 2012

We received a message recently from Anabela de Alejos, our development coordinator in Guatemala, about a donation made to our Los Pinos Children’s Village. Here is the story as related by Anabela;

ICC’s Hogar Los Pinos project in Guatemala has people that love the work we are doing for the children. When they hear something about a company or any organization making donations, they call and recommend Los Pinos.

One of ICC’s friends in Guatemala heard about a company called Ajemaya, S.A. This company was looking for associations or social organizations to whom they could donate orange juice and citrus punch. ICC’s friend immediately thought of our children and made a referral. The company contacted us and offered to give us 24 pallets of their product if we would be willing to distribute it where needed.

We partner with an organization here in Guatemala called Orphan Resources. They have given us various gifts-in-kind that have been a blessing to our children. It was a pleasure to be able to work with them in distributing this donation. Because of the large supply, we were able to distribute juice to other facilities that help orphan children. Our Los Pinos children’s village received 9 pallets. Another 41 orphanages also received a supply of juice. We are very thankful for this company because they chose to share their product with our children.

May God bless all of our donors. With your support we can help many children who need it.
