Community Coordinator

Gloria Rosales and her husband, Fernando Santiago, were sealed in the Mesa Temple prior to temples being opened in Guatemala. Gloria is a convert to the Church and was baptized in 1974. She and Fernando now have three grown children. She has been very dedicated to malnourished children and is currently managing the nutrition program in her hometown of Momostenango as well as supervising all the BCF programs in the Central America region. Her area has a very high rate of childhood malnutrition and many cases of children who are living in desperate circumstances.

Bountiful's Community Coordinators

Community coordinators serve with Bountiful as volunteers. They organize other local volunteers and together conduct screenings, train families, distribute locally-purchased nutritional supplements, and follow up on infant development.
