Guatemala has the highest rate of chronic malnutrition in children in all of Latin America. Nearly half of children under the age of 5 suffer the effects of severe malnutrition. Many of the hardships faced by the nation as a whole (poor education, housing and food insecurity, extreme poverty) all stem from poor childhood nutrition and an extreme disparity of wealth.
When you join with Hope of Life to forever change the lives of people in need, you are part of a powerful strategy that is impacting thousands of households and will transform Guatemala. We use a proven strategy to transform villages over a 3-5 year period: through the provision of water, schools, adequate housing, medical care, food security and child sponsorship, we are watching the transformation of an entire nation. Hope of Life never meets only physical needs—in everything we do, we are giving the Bread of Life and Living Water to people facing incredibly deep spiritual hunger and thirst.
