Juana with her medication

Thanks to recent financial donations, Juana was able to receive much needed medication for her parasitic infection. The contaminated soil and water in Guatemala contributes to intestinal infections that are painful and persistent. The treatment is easily obtained, but our single mothers do not have available funds to medicate their children. Our facilitator, Roland, was able to take Juana and her mother to a local pharmacy and purchase medication for the family.
