Frequently Asked Questions
Q: If I give $55 for half a pig, is someone in Guatemala really going to get half a pig? That sounds messy!
A: No, these amounts show how much your donation can provide for a developing Mayan community in Guatemala. Each year CESSMAQ's board of directors prepares a workplan, based on the progress of existing projects and their analysis of community needs, and submits this to Mission Presbytery's partnership committee. The latest workplan is at http://www.main.org/cessmaq/en/projects/proj.html . Your donation for ongoing development will support these workplan items. Your donation for hurricane Stan relief will support the shorter-term needs this disaster created in CESSMAQ's partner communities.
