We love Guatemala!
Since 2008, in-country partners and hardworking volunteers have been helping meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of these children. A vibrant nation that is rich in Mayan heritage, Guatemala continues to develop after years of civil and ethnic unrest.
Guatemala has the 6th highest rate of growth stunting of children due to malnutrition, according to a 2019 UNICEF report. About 1 million children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition. Stunted growth can cause severe development delays and increases the risk of death.
Through targeted feeding programs, integrated social work counseling and education accountability, children and families in our programs have access to the support they need to thrive. Lives are being changed in Guatemala because of people like you!
