SUPPORT TREASURE FAMILIES SUFFERING THE EFFECTS OF COVID-19

Guatemala has been under stay at home orders for over 4 months, in a country where more than 65% of the population lives under the poverty line this is devastating!  Thousands of people have taken to the streets with white flags indicating they are in need of food and asking for help.

Your help will provide faith, hope and love to children and their families in the midst of these difficult and uncertain times.  Your support allows us to provide tangible reminders that Jesus cares for their every need.

HOW COVID-19 HAS IMPACTED THE TREASURES:
  • People have not been given access to work in the garbage dump so families who depend on them have not been able to support their families by doing this.
  • Children in public schools are receiving classes via public television channels and working with their parents or older siblings using study guides. Older students are feeling pressure to drop out and work to help support their families.
  • Public hospitals are working to full capacity and are serving mainly emergency cases and Covid related cases.
HOW COVID-19 HAS IMPACTED THE TREASURES:
  • Garbage dumps are closed and families who depend on them are no longer able to work there to support their families.
  • Children in public schools are receiving classes via public television channels and working with their parents or older siblings using study guides. Older students are feeling pressure to drop out and work to help support their families.
  • Our health clinic is opened three times a week and so is our low cost pharmacy to support patients with medicines  when they have no where else to go.

EMPOWERING CHILDREN IN POVERTY IN GUATEMALA

 

POVERTY IS COMPLEX

65% of people in Guatemala live in poverty – not just economic, but physical, spiritual and mental. Over thirty years of serving the poor, we’ve identified eight forms of poverty that reinforce each other – that keep the poor excluded, manipulated and unable to build their own opportunities.

POVERTY CAN BE SOLVED!

People can overcome it, they just need the opportunities to do so. And when this happens, it brings many changes; such as, health and wellness, peace and liberty, abundancy and hope…

So, how to overcome poverty?
