I leave for Antigua, Guatemala tomorrow. I can't wait! It's been two years since I've gone. The group I volunteer with is Faith In Practice, a Texas based non-for-profit organization. My professor, Dr. Lola Coke, also volunteers with this group. It provides surgeries, dental care, and preventative care for the beautiful people of Guatemala.
Last year I raised money for La Casa de Los Angeles, an orphanage outside of Antigua, Guatemala that my family, Dr. and Mrs. Golbus, are very involved with. They created a non-for-profit to help the orphanage by building dormers, creating a day-care and school, and providing books, sports equipment, and more. The best part is that it's run by two nuns (who are also sisters) and the kids are not adopted out so they grow up as a family. This year I am fundraising for Faith in Practice and I appreciate any help, $5 is not too little an amount. I will try and keep this blog updated while I am abroad.
Please help me raise money for Faith in Practice, the organization that gives me the chance to do good work. Donate at https://www.faithinpractice.org/stm-volunteer/24744
