Oasis de Amor CarePoint
Oasis de Amor is a ministry with a drop-in center in the city of Santo Domingo in the southwestern region of Guatemala.
The area has many natural resources surrounded by rivers and opportunities for farming, but the rainy season causes flooding. Parents of the children coming to the drop-in center typically work in the sugarcane, corn, bean, and banana fields, earning about four dollars a day. Lack of income is reflected in the poor nutrition, shortage of medical care, and inability to pay school-related fees. For children in school, many of their parents are illiterate and cannot help with homework. CarePoint staff bring the community programming that seeks to provide education and healthcare assistance, as well as holistic development through Bible lessons to the children as a support to their families.
With the partnership of the Lift Church, the children at Oasis de Amor CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Lift Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Oasis de Amor
Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.
Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.

In a community where most children have to work in fields so their family can get by, Maria has bigger dreams for her children.
Start a Fundraiser for Oasis de Amor
HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.
A fundraiser for Oasis de Amor CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.

When our staff visit CarePoints, the most common question they get from children is how their sponsors are doing. They LOVE hearing from you!
