WHAT OUR COMMUNITIES SAY

The Mayan Families team checked my baby and realized that his health was not normal.  They referred me for tests and examinations… Thanks to all the help, my son is now improving in health, he is more active, starting to smile and move by himself, which he never did before.”

Malnutrition Prevention Program

“My father forgot about the debt and us… it is thanks to my scholarship with Mayan Families that I have been able to keep going with my studies. Today, I am proud to be in 8th grade.”

Scholarship Program

¨The fact that Mayan Families provided us with work and materials when we could not leave the communities was a great help. We were able to avoid putting ourselves at risk and could work comfortably from our homes. We are so grateful to have received support in these critical times and to have the opportunity to continue learning.¨
