They're ready to partner with you.
The men and women who come to Vine's warehouse are an extraordinary group of people. Nurses and teachers, MDs and administrators. Full-time professionals and after-hours volunteers. They are the leading practitioners of orphan care, disability services, and frontier healthcare in Guatemala. Many of the communities they live and work in are isolated, so they don't all know each other. But Vine knows them, and we know what they all have in common: they take care of people who can't afford to pay them.
They know what the needs are.
Our ministry partners in Guatemala are the men and women who have dedicated their lives to living and working in vulnerable communities. They know what the needs are, and we work to find supplies that will really make a difference. Sometimes antibiotics will save a kid's life, and sometimes a good clean bandage will. Very often, a nurse serving the poor communities in rural Guatemala can't afford either, and that's where you come in.
Our doors are open.
Supplies we send on your behalf end up in our warehouse near Guatemala City - but our shelves are never full for long. We open our doors to over 120 approved organizations who work to help the poor, and they take what they need for as long as we have it in stock. Medicine and supplies sent through Vine reach millions of people who need them.
The interdependence of friends.
We've spent twenty-five years getting to know people who serve the poor. They often say they "couldn't do it without you." They can live in vulnerable communities, and they can even give their time away. But when they're out of medical supplies, they have to stop treating patients. You provide them with supplies, and they allow you to help the people who need it most. Here at Vine, we love getting to play a small role in that great story.
