Catarina and her daughters admire their donated stove

Catarina is now being treated for her Tuberculosis and asthma, as is her oldest daughter. The family receives monthly food staples (which include protein, carbohydrates and essential oils) from our nutrition program. Our facilitator, Roland, checks in with Catarina monthly when he delivers her food donations. His dedication to the well-being of our single mothers has allowed them to receive their stoves, filters and monthly food. To deliver these items, within the limitations of traveling in Guatemala, is difficult at best.
Catarina's household will now be a healthier place for her daughters and herself without the daily output of interior smoke when she cooks tortillas.
