Ministry Needs
Often individuals ask us what they can do to help meet the needs of the children at Mi Refugio and the surrounding ministry areas.  It is often more feasible to purchase these items in the United States and then have them transported to Guatemala by the short term ministry teams when they travel to Mi Refugio.

If you click on the link to the right, you can view a current list of some of the needs items that you can help provide.  To find out how you can get these items into the hands of a ministry team please either call or email Harry Engen in Maryland.
