E3KIDS MAKES AN IMPACT IN CENTRAL AMERICA

Supporting relief, food/hygiene, and medical treatment

e3kids international engages in several capacities in Guatemala: supporting mission trips, distributing food bags and hygiene kits, and healing through pop-up medical clinics.

We partner with Hope of Life International, a ministry located in Zacapa, Guatemala. Our team works alongside the long-term missionaries. Our teams offer relief assistance to children and their families who were previously rescued and cared for at the Hope of Life Campus. Establishing ground support and constantly assessing needs is part of our mission -- equipping and empowering Guatemalans to reach the vision that God has placed on their hearts.

Hope of Life supports children who have been abandoned, forgotten, or orphaned.

Safe Haven Village is a small community on the Hope of Life campus that cares for some of these children. Through the dedicated sacrifice and support of carefully selected American families, we help these children to thrive though the care of houseparents who are committed to their successful growth -- both physically and spiritually.

We deliver food bags and hygiene kits, along with providing hygiene education and pop-up medical clinics to nearby impoverished villages. To maintain our promises, we routinely check-in on the families we support to foster a healthy and open relationship between the missionaries and community members.
