Working with rural Mayans to improve family health

When their region’s coffee industry collapsed, most highland Q’eqchi’ people were left with subsistence farming of corn as their only sure source of food.

As a result, these families now have among the highest rates of malnutrition and maternal mortality in the world.

Many illnesses and fatalities could be quite easily prevented, but in the mountainous - often inaccessible - villages, health services and resources are scarce to non-existent.

Asociación Narú works with local organisations and communities to bring nutritional support, health education and clean water to families living in extreme poverty.
