Delivering Meals to Tzununá, Guatemala

11 May

In Guatemala, the face of poverty and hunger is young, indigenous and rural. Guatemala, with the fourth highest rate of chronic malnutrition in the world and the highest in Latin America and the Caribbean, faces a serious challenge to reduce chronic undernutrition, currently at 49.3% among children under 5.

The Interface Foundation took two of our supporters Ami Manning & actor Simon Rex to visit the village of  Tzununá during the week of May 3.  Thanks to Stop Hunger Now we delivered 800 meals into mother/child care programs. 

The women of the village even helped us carry the meals to the center where we distributed them.
