The Guatemala Aid Fund was started by Bethany Eisenberg Zeeb, who adopted two Guatemalan children and, as a result, learned firsthand of the plight of the abandoned children living in the underserved orphanages in Guatemala. What began as a personal campaign to donate funds and supplies to different programs aiding orphaned and sick children as well as handicapped adults, turned in to a full-fledged initiative dedicated to raising funds to help provide education, medical assistance and care to four programs, including the Luz de Fatima Orphanage.
