ONE MORE CHILD
Our ministry partners in Guatemala have been helping meet the physical and spiritual needs of vulnerable children and struggling families since 2008. A vibrant nation that is rich in Mayan heritage, Guatemala continues to develop after years of civil and ethnic unrest. 43.5% of children in Guatemala experience growth stunting due to malnutrition, according to a 2023 UNICEF report. Stunted growth can cause severe developmental delays and increases the risk of death. 23 children per 1,000 life births die under the age of five.
OUR IMPACT IN GUATEMALA
Short-term mission teams serve vulnerable children and struggling families in Guatemala at the One More Child ministry center, a nearby school, and several offsite ministries. Show the love of Christ through Bible stories, singing, crafts, and games, ongoing maintenance and building projects as well as community development efforts.
Our Child Sponsorship program in Guatemala is one of our largest, serving more than 400 children and their families. Sponsorship provides children educational opportunities, regular nutrition, necessary medical care, and consistent opportunities to hear the gospel.
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. Additionally, our ministry opportunities in Guatemala strengthen communities by providing water filters for families, building water wells, and helping provide safe homes for struggling families.
