Day 4- The Dump

Yesterday we started off early and went to the dump.  We went there to hand out food, soap, and things for the children.  There are 190 families represented at the dump.  They sort everything at the dump into recyclables and what can be used or sold.
We took a bus ride and then walked through the gate and to the house in this:

We used the ‘house’ of the president of the association (I think that was her title—she is in the white coat below) and developed a plan for people to walk through.

We then started having people escorted through as we handed things out.  This saved us from being mobbed as we handing things out. Plus, we could greet each one individually.  Guatemalan people love to hug and kiss. We did a lot of both yesterday!
Everyone lined up outside.

We then went to walk around and finish handing out little things such as soap and stuffed animals.
