"Obras sociales del Santo Hermano Pedro" is a hospital and orphanage loacted in Antigua, Guatemala. Run by Fransician Friars, it is a religious and humanitarian institution that provides shelter and healthcare services to the poorest and neediest of Guatemala. We were introduced to this beautiful place by Fr. Dan Morales, a faithful priest and friend, who organized so many mission trips over the last 10 years of his life. While serving at Las Obras, we witnessed the utmost care and dignity given to each human person and experienced the merciful love of God. God has been so generous to us and we would be so humbled if you would help us share this gift with Las Obras. Your donation will go to THE HERMANO PEDRO SOCIAL WORKS FOUNDATION, a US tax deductible non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. Crowdrise will send you an e-mail receipt with this information. We are so grateful for your love and support. Thank you!
