In Death of a hero, yet her vision lives on, Jacob Wheeler of the Glen Arbor Sun writes:
Hanley Denning, the founder of Safe Passage and a guiding light of hope for families in the Guatemala City garbage dump, was taken from us in a tragic car accident on the night of Thursday, January 18. She was returning from the capital city to her home in nearby Antigua after attending meetings to establish a day care center so that children in Safe Passage could leave their younger siblings in good hands while continuing their studies â€” an impossible luxury for most Guatemalan kids, yet one realized by more than 550 children who are now part of Safe Passage.
The Safe Passage organization draws a lot of its support from the Leelanau/Traverse City area and you can learn much more about Hanley Denning and Safe Passage from the link above and also by visiting the Safe Passage web site.
