Miguel and his family
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016 !!!
DEAR FRIENDS OF CASA MILAGRO !
We would like to thank you for your continued interest, support and warmth towards all of us of the MILAGRO-FAMILY.
Without you and your help we wouldn’t be able to do what we are doing, for already more than 23 YEARS !
As you may know, we are extremely affected by the financial situation in Europe. It has meant that – already for a whole year – every time we exchange money from Germany we now receive 30 % less than that of previous years.
It is simply unbearable for CASA MILAGRO, but with your support we can get through this crisis.
You may consider helping us by organizing a sale for our beautiful beaded jewelry – with your friends, at your work place, at your school, church etc.
You also might like to sponsor a child attending the Waldorf-School “Escuela Caracol” in S.Marcos la Laguna around the lake, it needs only 1 $ daily each child to make a big difference.
We appreciate you all spreading the word about our work – helping special families in need – single mothers, mothers with many children, senior widows, and very old couples. Furthermore connecting special children, who need loving attention and professional support with a school in a beautiful garden =
ESCUELA CARACOL WALDORF. Your sponsorship allows the boat ride and the school fee.
In the meantime we have our first 6. grade graduate from Waldorf. His name is M i g u e l, and we are so happy for him and his family, and we are pleased to announce that he already has a place to continue studying in an English teaching school.
Miguel is just 12 years old, but shows promise beyond his years – we hope for your generous support that allows him to study for the next few years and prepare for University.
PLEASE! We invite you to donate just ONE DOLLAR A DAY for Miguel’s education – what a change it will make in his life and the life of his family!
The senior widows of Casa Milagro are incredible appreciative for your sponsorships. We are supporting them with monthly food supplies and include them in our festivities of Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day etc. We also help them to organize for their legal paperwork to receive a retirement of 400 Q (50 $) a month.
With delight we also like to announce the new project of a WALDORF-KINDERGARDEN! Thank’s to the Iglesia Luterana Alemana in Guatemala-City we are able to build this new unit for the smallest children who than might go to S. Marcos to join “Escuela Caracol”. We are still looking for Waldorf-teachers to share their experiences with us and give us training. We also need to find a young woman in the village or around interested in this education.
Our many activities over the year were strongly supported by volunteers and practitioners of Universities in Germany and Switzerland. We are so very grateful to receive those young people with their enthusiasm, interest and strong involvement.
LET ME FINISH WITH BEST WISHES FOR THE NEW YEAR – PLEASE, HELP US EVEN MORE TO CONTINUE OUR GOOD WORK !
YOURS, THILDA AND ALL MOTHERS AND CHILDREN OF
