The mission was set up at the request of a school for indigent children and young adults who do not have access to the Guatemalan medical care and services as they are Nicaraguans settled in Guatemala. Out of the total 450 kids, this school was attended by 150 kids that live near the city dump and ate from the dump. The ground arrangement were made with the help of local Rotarians.
