F.E.Urbana was so happy to collaborate in this case, with Galcom Intl. Canada and Fundación Emmanuel Chimaltenango and Jocotán, assisting in logistics and interpretation.
The beautiful region of Chimaltenango has received the support of both organizations in many ways.
Galcom Canada has donated pre-tuned solar radios to Fundación Emmanuel for their distribution in the area. These solar radios were designed and developed by Galcom Canada, whose founder, Allan McGuirl, and wife visited on this occasion the Radio Iximché.
Radio Iximché transmits approximately 80% of its programs in the local Mayan language of the region, Kak'chiquel. In this way it reaches the furthest villages and even the most uneducated population.
Such is the case of this sweet grandmother who came to the Radio Iximché and was happy to receive a solar pre-tuned radio recently refurbished by Galcom's own Allan McGuirl.
She did not hide her happiness as she told us how much she had wanted one for so long and after seeing many in her village receive one.
The same collaboration is replicated in the arid zone of Jocotán, Chiquimula. This region is prone to droughts and many children are severly undernourished. Galcom Canada and Fundación Emmanuel through Radio Alegría, bring the good news of salvation through the pre-tuned solar radios.
Fundación Emmanuel also has many programs that address the large variety of social issues in the area and that go hand in hand with the spreading of the Gospel.
Thanks be to God for so many brothers and sisters in all different regions of the world, and with many different vocations, who come together to advance His kingdom!
We hope to collaborate again soon with these fantastic organizations.
