The food crisis in Guatemala is having a devastating effect on the elderly. Without enough to eat, many older people are becoming weak and malnourished. This leaves them more vulnerable to illnesses that they cannot afford medical care for and unable to provide for even their most basic needs. In many cases, family members are unable to help as they struggle to feed themselves and their children. This leaves the elderly without any form of support, often living in heartbreaking conditions.
Our Elderly Care program allows us to bring life-sustaining food and medical care to people who would otherwise be left to die.
