WE ARE TURNING 15!
2016 is a BIG year for WINGS – we are turning 15! We have accomplished so much over the last 15 years thanks to your continuing support. We hope you will join us in celebration of WINGS’ Quinceañera!
We are grateful to YOU: our supporters, leaders, board members and staff — who have contributed to our 15 years of success. It is your support, initiative and leadership that have made it possible.
We’ve come a long way since 2001 and indeed have much to celebrate. From helping a handful of women who couldn’t afford to pay for tubal ligations, with you by our side we have grown to become one of the leader family planning and reproductive health organizations in Guatemala, working in 12 predominately rural, indigenous, and low-income provinces, operating through 3 stationary clinics and a network of mobile and partner clinics.
15 YEARS REFLECTING BACK AND LOOKING FORWARD
In 1999, a friend asked Sue Patterson to help seven women who each had at least eight children and desired to get tubal ligations. Sue contributed of her own funds and also sought donations. After receiving an overwhelming amount of support, Sue decided to start a family planning non-profit organization in Guatemala. Watch the video interview with Sue to learn more!
