OUR CAUSE

13,000 PEOPLE

LIVE IN THE GUATEMALA CITY GARBAGE DUMP COMMUNITIES.
MORE THAN 50% ARE CHILDREN.

A HUMANITARIAN CRISIS THAT NEEDS IMMEDIATE RELIEF

People living in the garbage dump communities face immense social, political, physical, and psychological challenges. Each community is plagued with physical, sexual and drug abuse. The conditions of these communities have drawn international attention by NGO’s and activists.

Fighting stray dogs for scraps of food in the garbage dump, parents clothing their children in outfits found in the trash, young children fearing cat sized rats that bite in the night; It’s hard to believe that people live in such conditions but thousands in Guatemala City do.

HOPE’S IN ACTIVELY WORKS TO BRING A NEW FUTURE
TO THOSE LIVING IN THESE COMMUNITIES
