Agroamerica, the Fernando Bolaños Foundation, through the Order of Malta, obtained a donation for the Valle de los Angeles orphanage
Guatemala, April 2012. The Fernando Bolaños Foundation organized a donation of food and basic necessities from the Order of Malta for the Valle de Los Angeles orphanage, located just outside Guatemala City.
140 children benefited from the donation which included beans, cereal, baby food, chocolate, pancake mix, laundry detergent, body cream, blankets, and personal hygiene kits.
The orphanage is supported by local and international donations. The children in the orphange come from some of the poorest communities in the country in the departments of Petén, Jutiapa, Jalapa, Zacapa, Sololá, Totonicapán and Guatemala.
Vicky de Díaz, orphanage assistant, commented, “The donation will help a lot. The food will supplement our existing menus to help feed the children. As well, the orphanage is located in an area that has a relatively cold climate, so the blankets will be very useful. We’ll use the chocolates as prizes for the cleaning contests that we have among the children.”
