Friends of Guatemalan Children Inc
Friends of Guatemalan Children's (FOGC) mission is to promote the health of Guatemalan children by providing financial assistance to organizations and establishments that provide nutritional and medical assistance to those children and to relieve the distress of orphaned and abandoned Guatemalan Children through provision of food, medical care, adoption assistance and similar activities. FOGC is entirely run by volunteers so that all donations can go directly to support the children in need in Guatemala. Our main beneficiary is the Casa Guatemala school and orphanage (http://www.casa-guatemala.org). Casa Guatemala provides a safe home, medical care, education and a healthy environment to 250 children in Guatemala who have been faced with abandonment, abuse, neglect or extreme poverty.
