BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF NINOS DE GUATEMALA
Help Feed a Hungry Child...
Guatemala is home to over 16 million people and is the most populous country in Central America. In Guatemala, 56% of the population lives below the poverty line. This situation affects most severely the children of minorities. Poverty has many consequences on the lives of children: health problems, malnutrition, and obligation to work to the detriment of their education.
Guatemala has one of the highest rates of chronic malnutrition in the world, at 47 percent, correlated with poverty, poor living conditions, low levels of education, and inappropriate nutrition practices. In recent years, extended periods of drought have aggravated this situation and resulted in reduced harvests or the complete failure of vital crops such as maize and beans.
Four in ten children (43.4%) under five are chronically malnourished (as measured by height relative to age), a condition that causes them to drop out of school, lowers their productivity, makes them susceptible to illness and even loss of intellectual quotient, which are irreversible effects that last a lifetime. Chronic malnutrition affects eight in ten (80%) indigenous children. Help share God’s love with the children of Guatemala.
Your donations will provide vulnerable children with nutritious food, education and an opportunity for sustainable growth. Together we can make a difference. We know this is no easy task, which is why we need your help.
Your donations will be transferred directly to "Niños de Guatemala" to care for the children. Forever Natural Wellness will not keep any of these donations.
LET'S PUT SMILES BACK WHERE THEY BELONG!
Thank you for helping us bring back a smile to these children.
