ABOUT USGRACE CENTRE
How we Work
We invest the money we raise into organizations with years of experience and first-hand knowledge of the communities that need our help. Grace Centre and its partners work closely to ensure that donations are utilized to provide the maximum amount of care possible.
Health Care Clinics
We’ve raised funds to build three medical clinics since 2006. We continue to raise money to support 5 clinics.
Sangre de Cristo’s five pharmacies serve the needs of the medical clinics’ patients & their communities.
n 2011, Grace Centre helped to build a water filtration plant in for the area around San Pedro Ayampuc.
This program covers a lot of ground. Planting trees, potable water analysis, constructing latrines, efficient stoves and environmental education.
Educating families with health initiatives in their communities helps prevent many unnecessary illnesses and conditions from developing.
We support two dental clinics as well as community and school based fluoride and dental health education programs.
With Your Help

SANGRE DE CRISTO
Grace Centre was created to help, period. And in Guatemala, we see a tremendous need right now. The great news is we can make an immediate difference. We, were unexpectedly called to serve a new need as the effects of this global pandemic are hitting the impoverished and vulnerable families we serve, who, with a little compassion and a helping hand, can have the supplies and stability they need so desperately.
While families are asked to pay a small fee, less than less than two dollars, to access needed care; no one is denied service when unable to pay.
Recognized as one of the top non-profit health and education organizations in Guatemala by The Juan Bautista Gutierrez Foundation, Sangre de Cristo delivers what others don’t.
