HTI sponsors an adopt-a-child program that aids poverty-stricken families of the Church of Christ in Guatemala. Sponsors in the U.S. provide $33/month per child to provide food, clothing, school supplies, and bi-annual medical and dental check-ups. Sponsors receive a photo and biographical sketch of the child they commit to sponsor. The children write letters to their sponsors periodically throughout the year, and sponsors can write or visit their child in Guatemala if they desire.
There are over 800 children from forty-seven congregations currently enrolled in this program. Again, the beauty of the program is that it focuses on the 'whole' child by providing food and clothing plus activities to encourage individual growth in multiple areas--spiritually, educationally, and socially. Each year the children see our medical and dental providers for well-child check-ups, dental cleanings and may even be referred to a surgical clinic to care for any of their surgical needs.
