I am writing to share the narrative and financial reports for the last phase of our project in San Lucas Toliman, where 41 families were supported with a Healthy Home Kit in the communities of Xejuyu, Chipop, Panimache, and Las Canoas.

In addition, I am attaching some photographs from the inauguration ceremony of this phase, and below I am sharing a few links to profiles of families who benefitted from this project:

I know that you were wanting to plan a visit to the project, so please let us know when it would be most convenient for you and your colleagues.

In total, 143 families were supported with this project thanks to the support of Rotary Club of Greater Bend and Rotary Club La Ermita.

Again, thank you for all of your support! Warm regards, Makensie Brown Director of International Resource Development Habitat for Humanity Guatemala

There's only about a week left to register a team from our club for Swing 4 Scouting on Friday, May 21st at Lost Tracks Golf Club in Bend.

If you enjoy golf, or just want to support a great organization, the Boy Scouts in Central Oregon, go to and register to play or sponsor the event.
