Ensuring healthy smiles for Guatemalan children

Project SONRISA supports the dental health education campaign through the Sangre de Cristo Health Care Project founded by ASC Sister Dani Brought (Sisters of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ) in Guatemala. Funds allow the Health Care Project to provide education and health care to underserved area children. Each dollar gets a good toothbrush to a child, so your donations helps children enjoy a healthier, happier life. 

An Integral Part of Newman University's Guatemala Study and Serve Program 

During our service week with the Sisters of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ and their community in La Labor, Guatemala, students and faculty will collaborate with Project staff and professionals in a variety of health and education tasks, including a children's dental health campaign. 100% of your gift goes toward toothbrushes, so after the oral health education, the Health Care Project can provide a free annual dental exam and cleaning for each child.

How Can I Help?

Our Goal: $9000
Our Timeline: May 1, 2015

Changes in airline baggage charges have changed our approach. This year we're requesting funds: when we arrive in Guatemala, 100% of financial gifts will go toward the purchase of high-quality toothbrushes for the children.
