Our focus this year for Giving Tuesday is fighting Malnutrition and hunger among children and the elderly.
Having barely enough food has been such a hardship for so many families this year. The families that we work with usually only have the money that they earn daily to be able to buy food. When the pandemic closed down all work then many families had nothing to eat.
Fundamaya has been delivering food to families weekly during the pandemic and our supplies are now depleted.
According to Unicef, "In Guatemala, 1 in every 2 children suffers chronic malnutrition. Government data show acute malnutrition among the under-fives rose by "80% in Guatemala in 2020 compared to 2019."
More children are suffering from malnutrition now than before the pandemic. The elderly are suffering from hunger. The problem is still not enough food to eat and many more children malnourished. Please help us with this Hunger Emergency.
Please donate to our Giving Tuesday campaign to raise funds to feed the children, families, and the elderly in need, who have nowhere else to turn.
No one should go hungry.
Please donate whatever you can....no matter how small, it will help someone to eat.
