A gift of safe stoves

Miracles in Action and the people of Chuiquel want to thank our donors for their generosity and caring. Many of the recently installed stoves were given by a donor instead of buying gifts for friends and family. We are impressed by the continued support to the poor families in Chuiquel, long after the donor’s first visit to Guatemala. Often when we return to our comfortable homes in the US, and are not face to face with extreme poverty, it is easy to forget how different our lives are to theirs, and how little it takes to help. Thank you for making a sustainable difference with improved education and health.

On Saturday, January 22, 49 stoves were delivered to the community of Chuiquel and staff from our partner charity, Hombres y Mujeres en Accion, spent the day setting up the stoves, training, answering questions, and enjoying the enthusiasm in this community. They will return to this community in one month to follow up on each stove to assure each one has been installed correctly and is being maintained according to instructions.

Lois Warner, President of Hombres y Mujeres en Accion, writes “Thank you for supplying stoves to this deserving community and ultimately improving the health, livelihood and quality of life for 100s of people. Please pass on our thanks to your donors who made this possible.”
