We are partnering with local ministries in Guatemala to provide support for our friends and neighbors. The enemy in this area is not the virus itself, but the economic impact it is having on families who live in extreme poverty.
Many of our patients at Dr. Carlos' clinic (that we support) are elderly. According to doc, they have been losing weight and struggling with they health more than normal. The reason is because they are not eating. They have no money for food.
Most of the elderly are sustained by their children who work. Because the virus lockdowns are preventing people from working, the results are devastating.
In Guatemala, there is no government help.
