The Hospital de la Familia Foundation (HdlFF) supports a year-round medical clinic, dental clinic, state-of-the-art ophthalmology center, and brings volunteer medical teams from the United States 7 times per year to perform critical procedures and surgeries. We also support a Child Wellness Center, treating babies, aged 0-5, for chronic malnutrition. Our education programs include a nursing assistant school, sewing school, and an elementary school. These programs provide education and create jobs in a region where these opportunities are limited.
The cessation of funding from the United States to Guatemala to help support non-governmental humanitarian organizations in Guatemala has caused many organizations to leave due to lack of funding. The result of this will be increased poverty and even more Guatemalans leaving their country to provide for their families because they will have no other option.
The mission of HdlFF is even more critical than ever before. Please help support our cause.
