Responding to COVID-19 In
Rural Guatemala


The COVID-19 crisis is ongoing in Guatemala. Many Guatemalans are day workers who have been heavily affected since March 2020 due to restrictions in transport, market hours, and border closures. The families in our partner communities, as you know, live in poverty. In the best of times, it is difficult to put food on the table. Now, it has become impossible.

Our Response
- Provide emergency food and essential hygiene supplies to all 1,600+ children in our partner communities every month
- Produce videos of healthy recipes created with food from the emergency food baskets
- Share health and hygiene information related to COVID-19 prevention in their native language, K’iche’
- Produce videos of our Education Coordinators reading storybooks and providing at-home literacy activities
