Our Work in Country
More than half of all Guatemalan families live in poverty with limited access to health care, and they suffer needlessly from preventable and treatable diseases.
Recognizing the enormous health care needs in the country, we work with the Guatemalan Order of Malta to ensure ongoing access to medicine for a network of health and social service institutions including approximately 1500 sub-recipients.
Most recently, Americares worked with Order of Malta in response to the eruption of the Fuego Volcano.
Working in Guatemala since 1986.
