Guatemala Hospital brings hope to many.
February 21, 2012 - Guatemala Hospital Grand Opening - February 21, 2012 marked our Help the Children Guatemala Hospital Grand opening. With over 800 people, 44 from the United States alone, the much anticipated grand opening took off without a hitch. Twenty-two students from Oaks Christian School, in Westlake, are credited with graciously building a playground set in the back of the hospital designed with a different type of family waiting room in mind. The long list of dedicated volunteers we have to thank is flagged with significance. We also extend a thank you to all of the people making ongoing monthly donations, which contributed not only to the building of our groundbreaking hospital, but also continue to aid in the life saving services being provided by our Help the Children Guatemala Hospital. Thank you!
Guatemala Hospital - How It All Started
April 21, 2009 - Land in Guatemala - Help The Children was given eight acres of land in Malacatancito Huehuetenango, Guatemala, to build a hospital in the community. The hospital is currently in development and near completion, will provide healthcare for over 300,000 people who currently do not have a medical facility, at all.
Help The Children already has commitments from the Medical University, as well as retired medical professionals, to provide staffing on a volunteer basis. The hospital has an estimated completion date of May 2011. Upon completion of the hospital project, Help The Children will begin construction on a church and an orphanage to be added to the complex.
May 24, 2009 - Guatemala Hospital - Guatemala Hospital Project takes the first steps to serving the poor and needy in Huehuetenango area of Guatemala. Over 300,000 people in the surrounding area will benefit from the hospital scheduled to be completed by 2011.
January 2, 2010 - Guatemala Hospital Project Update - Right now we are 25% through with our hospital building in Guatemala. To learn more about this project that will save lives for years to come. Our goal is we need 3,000 people to commit to $20 per month for only 6 months. That will raise over $300,000 to finish this badly needed hospital.
If you have any questions regarding this hospital please do not hesitate to call me and I would be happy to discuss the building project and how we are going to manage the hospital.
Help the Children's Guatemala hospital hangs in the balance. This film accurately depicts the current status of our medical mission and the dehumanizing life predicament of northern Guatemalans. Watch and experience true medical desperation.
I traveled this barren region of Guatemala and met each and every one of the people that you are about to discover. One by one, they captured my attention, my heart, and my soul. My mind has been etched with their stories, their lives, and their character.
Hospital construction is underway, but will halt if more donations are not received soon. I now extend my appeal to you. I need your help to continue with the project. It's a simple matter of selecting our donation preference that best suits your capabilities, found on the upper right hand side of this page. Choose to offer monthly support or make single donations at any time. Either way, your contributions will make the difference necessary for altering the lives of an incredible, well-deserving, group of people.
When you have seen the difference many people working together can make, you realize that unity is the only defense against atrocity. Please find it in your heart to give.

May 4, 2010 - Guatemala Hospital Project Update - Our Help the Children Guatemala Hospital is near completion. What's taking place, here with the ongoing monthly support, and in Guatemala with the volunteer-based building of the hospital, is truly amazing.
Roger's vision of helping people stranded without medical care, has now turned into a full-flledged Help the Children Guatemala Hospital reality. The potential scope of help that our Guatemala Hospital will bring in the future should be enough to compel us all to join the cause.
January 3, 2011 - Guatemala Hospital Grand Opening Coming Soon - Look for our Help the Children Guatemala Hospital Grand opening to take place Spring 2012. We've come a long way and have many generous people to thank. The people making ongoing monthly donations have helped make a significant impact on us completing the building of the hospital within the intitially projected time frame. We send a warm thank you to all who have helped so far and to all who will now join. What a great way to Help the Children.
