Years of violence and conflict have displaced rural communities in this South American country, causing multiple humanitarian crises.
Guatemala, the largest economy in Central America, has one of the highest inequality rates in Latin America.
Malnutrition, poverty and maternal and infant mortality are all high, especially in rural and indigenous areas.
An estimated 50,000 people cross the southern border of the USA from Central America on an irregular basis every year, primarily as a result of unemployment, poverty, violence and the impact of climate change on nutrition.
Public safety, migration, drug trafficking, education and poor access to clean water and basic sanitation are some of the challenges facing Guatemalans. More than half of its population lives below the national poverty threshold, making them highly vulnerable to seasonal hunger and food shortages.
