The Bethany Center is a network of ministries dedicated to offering pre and post natal medical care to expectant mothers in Guatemala. We also offer skills training, regular meals, and a place for joyful community for impoverished families who are struggling to feed their children.
UNDERSTANDING THE NEED
Nearly 30 out of 1,000 mothers in Guatemala will lose their baby due to a lack of basic education, hygiene, and medical care.
Of children who are safely born, 50% will face chronic malnutrition between the ages of 0-5 and will suffer permanent, long-term physical consequences from the lack of proper nutrition.
