Hope of Life (Esperanza de Vida)

As you join us in saving the lives of people in Guatemala, whatever their circumstance, you are helping share God’s love and the message of the gospel—bringing hope to people in both practical and spiritual ways.

Esperanza de Vida, located in Guatemala receives shipments of medical supplies, equipment and humanitarian aid to be used by those in need in hospitals and clinics that treat cancer and other degenerative diseases. The hospital and clinics provide much needed medical care to approximately 23,000 cancer patients yearly; charging only the minimum amount, or in most cases Nothing, for fee needed to provide the medical care. The regions they serve are some of the over twenty targeted areas by the World Health Organization to combat various degenerative diseases. Some diseases are spreading at epidemic rates. The lack of properly equipped medical facilities and medical supplies further contribute to the ongoing challenge of saving lives.
