Everyday, our Maternal Child Health team -- led by a small but mighty group of three women -- spend their days supporting mothers and infants through the critical periods of pregnancy and early childhood.
Our beneficiary mothers are carrying out healthy pregnancies, and their children are exceeding the national infant mortality rates. Lives are improving in rural Guatemala.
However, the great successes we have seen so far have only been possible because of the support of our MCH sponsors. A sponsorship makes all the difference.
“I began to learn how children in Guatemala were dying before they were a year old because access to medical services were so rare.” When the hurricane hit in 2005, the few resources that were available in Santiago and other nearby towns were destroyed.
“After hearing about all of this, I wanted to help. I found Pueblo a Pueblo through their website, and saw how this is a program supporting pregnant mothers and infants. I became an MCH sponsor to Elena, a mother, and her daughter Anna Veronica.”
Anne’s story doesn’t have to be unique. You can help empower mothers and infants in rural Guatemala too. Your sponsorship translates into real impact- an impact that is transforming lives and communities.
