Guatemala – Los Pinos Hogar Campestre Adventista
In the early morning hours of February 4, 1976 a 7.5 magnitude earthquake devastated Guatemala City, killing 23,000 people, seriously injuring 74,000 more, and leaving 1 million others homeless. Out of this heartbreaking tragedy, the very first ICC Children’s Village was created: Los Pinos Children’s Village.
In 1978, the Flecks and other dedicated volunteers in the United States successfully incorporated ICC as a 501(c)(3) charity that would manage and accept donations for the support of orphaned children. The children’s project in Guatemala started small at first and only progressed as compassionate individuals started sending donations of support to ICC. Now, Los Pinos continues to be a thriving home for orphaned and abandoned children.
