Our History in Guatemala

FH started operating in Guatemala in 1976 in response to an earthquake that killed more than 23,000 people through the provision of clothing, food and plastic sheeting for temporary shelters. After officially establishing the office in 1981 to focus on child development, FH concentrated on meeting the needs of orphans and widows who had been affected by Guatemala’s civil war. Today the work in Guatemala has expanded and deepened to focus on long-term community development. Currently FH Guatemala operates currently operates in 112 communities in the regions of Alta Verapaz, Quiche and Huehuetenango and serves 88,384 individuals.
