Community Health Care in Guatemala



REGION: Mesoamerica

About the project

Disease often goes untreated among indigenous Kekchi communities in Guatemala, and the rates of infant and maternal mortality among indigenous families is extremely high. Sometimes that’s because they don’t have money to pay for health care. Sometimes it’s because they speak Kekchi instead of Spanish and know they won’t be able to communicate with doctors. The Church of the Nazarene in Guatemala is seeking to create change among communities where it serves through community-based health care. Professionals will train district leaders, local church leaders, and the general community in good health practices. This will create a ripple effect that will reduce maternal and infant mortality, provide preventative care and vaccinations, decrease childhood malnutrition, and reduce water-related disease. Your support of Community Health Care in Guatemala will save lives and provide a better quality of life.
