We Need Your Help!

Mi Refugio is a faith ministry, trusting God for every need that they have. Mi Refugio is a nonprofit corporation with tax exempt status (#52-1610744) in the USA. Contributions should be made out to Mi Refugio and mailed to:

Mi Refugio
4908 Jasmine Drive
Rockville, Maryland

Stock contributions are also welcome. Please call for details.  
All contributions are banked in the USA and then transferred to Mi Refugio's account in Guatemala because mail sent to Guatemala is not safe. A tax receipt is mailed.  All administrative costs in the USA are donated, so 100% of your contributions go to work in Guatemala

The funds contributed are used as follows:
