GRACE 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.

Pharmacies

Sangre de Cristo’s five pharmacies serve the needs of the medical clinics’ patients & their communities.

Water Treatment

n 2011, Grace Centre helped to build a water filtration plant in for the area around San Pedro Ayampuc.

Environmental Programs

This program covers a lot of ground. Planting trees, potable water analysis, constructing latrines, efficient stoves and environmental education.

Community Outreach

Educating families with health initiatives in their communities helps prevent many unnecessary illnesses and conditions from developing.

Dental

We support two dental clinics as well as community and school based fluoride and dental health education programs.

With Your Help

Our partner, Sangre de Cristo directly impacted the quality of life of over 100,000 people with  just $500,000 in 2017.

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.
