Inversiones, instrumental in campaign success-

GUATEMALA CITY, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Fundacion Ayudame a Vivir, a Guatemalan non-profit organization that raises money for cancer treatment of underprivileged children, today announced it raised more than US$2.6 million (Q20,252,400) during a three-month campaign entitled "Unete Para Salvar Ninos Con Cancer" Mega Lottery. The lottery included prizes consisting of ten Hyundai automobiles and three homes in Guatemala. The announcement was made by Maria Eugenia de Mata, president of Ayudame a Vivir.

Ayudame a Vivir created its Unete Mega Lottery campaign in 2001 to fund the Unidad Nacional de Oncologlia Pediatrica (UNOP), a hospital that specializes in the treatment of cancer for children and adolescents. Consequently, Ayudame a Vivir and its Unete Mega Lottery have become the largest non-governmental supporter of the UNOP comprising 40 percent of the UNOP's annual operating budget.

"We were thrilled to have the support and financial assistance of many corporate sponsors, including long-standing contributors Juan Jose Gutierrez, president of Pollo Campero, and Dionisio Gutierrez and Juan Luis Bosch, co- presidents of Corporacion Multi Inversiones," said de Mata. "These corporations were instrumental in the success of this campaign. We are extremely pleased with the results."

According to de Mata, Ayudame a Vivir recently concluded its fundraising efforts in El Salvador, which secured more than US$250,000.

"The foundation also has plans to begin fundraising efforts in the United States, with the hope that Ayudame a Vivir can make a difference for children in need of cancer treatment throughout the world -- bringing hope to children and families who are unable to pay for treatment," de Mata said.
