Beginning this week, HBI will be advancing a new program with Father Alex Busuttil and the Mission of Alto Cayma. The program, the Guardian Angel Program is a sponsorship program that links children and families in the communities of Alto Cayma (Father Alex's St. Helen's Parish) with international sponsors.
We are very fortunate to be taking over the sponsorship program from a U.S. based NGO (Unbound) that has worked with Father Alex for over ten years. Unbound is consolidating their Peruvian programs to the City of Lima, and this provides a great chance for HBI to be more involved in the compassionate work of Father Alex and the St. Helen's Parish.
Our priority is simple - to continue the high quality sponsorship of children and families in collaboration with Father Alex and on-the-ground staff. To do this, we will be working closely with the staff to develop all the structures needed to maintain the highest caliber of programming.
If you're a longstanding supporter of Father Alex and the Guardian Angel Program, please consider signing up for our new program on the HBI website at: and http://www.hbint.org/guardian-angel-program.html
