Strategies to support the communities

In 2005 Guatemala had to face Hurricane Stan which represented important economic issues. This natural disaster reduced access to food, land, seeds, and crops.

The land damaged. In addition, due to the lack of health services, only a third of the population had access to it, representing a major obstacle.

The victims of Hurricane Stan needed more health services. Without basic needs creates chronic poverty and having limited access to basic resources helps prolong the poverty rate. 

 

One of the organizations that intervened was the one of the Bosch Gutiérrez family, who provided help and guaranteed resources that otherwise would not be possible.

Small and medium-sized farms need financial help. Living with the minimum also harms family members because they have very limited access to health services

Also in the agricultural sector they were able to give support to a large number of affected families.
