It’s not very often we stumble across an organization that is truly making a difference in the lives of families who have nowhere else to turn, but Hope’s In is dedicated to serving the people of Guatemala City. Through faithfully building homes, providing medical care, and organizing day camps, Hope’s In has made a huge impact on the impoverished families living in the garbage dump communities of Guatemala.

There are currently 13,000 people living in these shocking conditions, and more than half are children. Competing with stray dogs for scraps of food, clothing children in garments found in the trash, and the threat of large rat bites in the night are common fears and occurrences in the garbage dump community.

But, there is hope. I have personally traveled to Guatemala City with this incredible organization and witnessed first-hand the good work that is being done. In spite of the harrowing living conditions, the community is strong, resilient, and ready for change.

It’s been said, “We can’t do everything, but we can all do something.” If you’re ready to lend a helping hand, here’s how you can get involved:

The Pursue Something New shirt is a donation-based gift that will directly impact the families living in the garbage dump communities.
