Charlene’s Project’s appeal for Guatemalan villages

In our February issue, we shared the story of the late Charlene Barr, an inspirational young lady whose legacy has transformed lives in Uganda and Guatemala.

On Saturday May 23, the Barr family is doing a fundraising half marathon walk/run to raise money in support of Charlene’s Project and in particular the villages of Las Escaleras and Vado Ancho in Guatemala.

In a Facebook video post, Janice Barr says that families are putting white flags outside their homes, an indication that they have no food and are starving.

The number of families in both villages combined is 140. The cost to provide a food bag for one family is £25 and will contain all a family needs to keep them alive for one month – corn, beans and sugar etc. Charlene’s Project has committed to providing these food bags and the transport of these to the villages for three months.

The family is aiming to raise £12,000 to show the people in these villages so dear to Charlene’s Project that people across the world love them and care for them, and that God loves them.
