Donate Essentials to Hno. Pedro NICU

Hermano Pedro Social Works

During one of our first trips to Guatemala, about eight years ago, while my daughter and I were holding a business meeting, my husband, Dave, decided to walk around Antigua; on one of the cobblestone streets, he came across a yellow colonial church; at its century old doors, a line of people formed, long enough that it wrapped around the entire block. He inquired of one of the women why she stood in line, he discovered that the church was actually a hospital and a nonprofit entity that provided free healthcare for the displaced, the poor, the needy, the underprivileged. The rest is history.

Since then, our family has been collecting donations for El Hno. Pedro Hospital every year. Sometimes my daughters collect baby items and money from their neighbors and we travel down for the holidays, laden with basic items to donate! Our customers over at Nena & Co. have generously provided funds to pay for cleft palate surgery for babies, for a remodel of their NICU unit, and for many basic necessities for the baby ward. Dave’s companies, Complete Speech LLC and F.A.S.T Foundation also provide many free services to this worthy cause.

This year, Mikoleon is reaching out to all of our customers via our website. How can you help? We’ve made it very easy for you to help! When you place an order with us, you will have the chance to donate $5 to our fund at checkout. This is not tax deductible, however, if you would like to donate more than $5 and use a tax write-off, you can do it through our non-profit foundation F.A.S.T. and you will get a tax deduction!

Your donation will be used to buy essentials for the Infant Ward at Hermano Pedro’s Hospital such as, diapers, baby formula, baby blankets, pacifiers, baby shampoo, lotions, snacks, etc. Our family will be traveling to Guate in January and we will be making a donation in the name of our Mikoleon family! Thank you in advance for trusting us and for being part of our Miko family, together, we can do so much more!
