Give the gift of food

Nearly 30 out of 1,000 mothers in Guatemala will lose their baby due to a lack of basic nutrition, education, hygiene, and medical care.

You would be amazed at how far a dollar will go in Guatemala. Each meal we serve at the Bethany Center costs an average of just 15 cents.

Your gift, no matter how small, goes directly to purchasing rice, beans, milk, and other staples to feed the families we serve. Today, our Dining Halls serve over 200 meals a day and are in need of supplies so they can continue to serve impoverished families. 

We need your help to provide meals for the women and children of Guatemala.

How Does the Bethany Center Help?

The Bethany Center is a ministry that serves the poorest of the poor — particularly women and children — in Guatemala. The center is collectively made up of four locations: the central urban center in the city of Coban Alta Verapaz, the Infant and Maternity Center in San Benito Lachua, and two smaller commodores (dining rooms) which serve remote villages in the mountains.

The state of women’s and children’s health in rural Guatemala in 2019 is alarming, particularly the health of women of childbearing years and their infants. Our combination of four Bethany Center locations spread throughout rural Guatemala exists to provide food, healthcare services, education, training, and general support to the poorest of the poor and specifically to women and young children in need in the area.

These parents dream of education and opportunity for their children, but their most pressing need is basic nutrition. A hungry child cannot learn or grow without consistent access to food.

Here are just a few of our projects at the Bethany Center:

  • Our maternity center serves mothers and their infants and children on a daily basis.
  • Our soup kitchens feed approximately 200 children, ages 4-14, daily.
  • Our school was inaugurated on October 5, 2019 and classes begin in January 2020.
