Restoring Health to 5 villages in Guatemala

A microproject by The GOD'S CHILD Project


As malnutrition rates continue to rise in Guatemala, The GOD'S CHILD Project aims to detect, treat, and educate community members before they or their children are suffering from severe malnutrition. By detecting malnutrition at its early stages, recovery, treatment, and life long effects are minimized for the children and their families. Combined with community education on proper food hygiene and nutrition the occurrence rates of malnutrition will drop dramatically.

Currently more than 47 percent of children born in Guatemala are suffering from malnutrition according to the World Food Programme (WFP). Although WFP is working diligently with the Guatemalan government to eradicate malnutrition, these children and their families are at risk of starvation, disease and developmental challenges, as they are not guaranteed basic nutritional supplements. This project will affect more than 1,000 Guatemalan children and families who reside around Antigua, Guatemala.


The GOD'S CHILD Project and Casa Jackson provide nutrition, medication, and health care to severely malnourished children. Through doing these field clinics, early detection and prevention will be possible - through training on nutrition, hygiene, and childcare for the children's mothers. These clinics will also provide additional opportunities to detect children who are malnourished and provide them with the proper care, and treatment as to avoid the long term affects of malnutrition.

Long-Term Impact

Casa Jackson protects the most vulnerable victims of poverty: infants and young children. By treating hundreds of patients and empowering communities, Casa Jackson saves lives and prevents the harmful long-term effects of malnutrition.
