Special Community Project
Malnutrition is a serious problem in Santa Maria with more than half of the population not having enough to eat. Children and the elderly are the most at risk with an estimated 60% of all children in Santa Maria under the age of 5 suffering from chronic malnutrition.
The situation has become worse with climate change. Guatemala used to have 6 months of steady rain. In the past five years, this has dwindled to scare amounts of rain over 4 months and higher temperatures which adversely affect crop production.
You can help by purchasing a bag of staples for a family. The bag will have rice, beans, dried soup, powdered milk, cereal and eggs. It will provide assistance to a family of 6 for at least two months. The cost is $75. If you can help, please go to our DONATE page. Thank you.
