Sandra Caal is a single mother living in the Guatemala City garbage dump community. She supports her five children by working in the dump, an incredibly dangerous place especially for a single woman, picking through trash for recyclables.
Sandra and her five children only eat when her mother finds food in the garbage dump while scavenging. Sandra had hepatitis from eating trash and prays that her children would not get sick from doing the same.
When I met her I asked her if she had been praying for food and when she said, “yes,” I told her that God had sent her a bag of food which we presented to her. After posting about this, a friend asked, “What can we do?” Rather than just feeling bad for this family, I want to ask any of you if you would join me in feeding this family real food for a year. No one should be eating out of a garbage dump. It costs $25 to feed this family two meals a day for a week, which includes things like rice, beans, milk and oatmeal. Many of us have spent $25 on a single meal for one when we’ve gone out to eat. I started asking for 52 friends to sponsor one week each to feed Sandra and her five children for the next year. The response has been incredible so the goal has been increased.
If you donate, please make sure that you include your name and email address because I want to let you know what week is “yours” so that you can celebrate the fact that this family is not eating garbage thanks to you and your family!
You can donate online through this site or you can send a check made payable to Beyond The Walls and send it to Beyond the Walls, PO Box 525 Mendham, NJ 07945. Include your contact information with the check. I will get it. Beyond the Walls is a small organization dedicated to making the world a better place. It is not a large organization, they will not share your information or send you any unsolicited emails, and your money won’t be going toward administrative costs. Please be assured that 100% of your donation will go toward feeding the family. I will cover transaction fees associated with PayPal. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, we may not be able to fix the world, but we can certainly make an impact one family – one week at a time. NOBODY SHOULD BE EATING GARBAGE. Thanks!
