Patricia will be working with Mayan Families to get the dollies into the hands of the children.

"Mayan Families is a small non-profit organization operating in the Highlands of Guatemala.
Based in Panajachel, we operate a variety of programs to support and empower the Maya people of Lake Atitlan and the surrounding areas."

They also have an orphanage care program that helps Children who have lost their family's or are living alone with a disabled older relative.

"We try to support families that are caring for orphans in order to keep them out of the orphanages, where they are often separated from their siblings. "

Maria Isabel and Miguel Andres mother suddenly felt very sick. 15 days later, she died of leukemia. The children have never known their fathers .....

So many sad sad stories ... but a little dolly could help cuddle some of the pain away ....
