Health&Help
We make lives better
We cure. We educate. We raise money for charity.


OUR MISSION
Health&Help is a humanitarian aid organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life of people by organizing and providing medical care to those in need around the world.

We provide access to 24/7 direct medical care as well as continually introducing public healthcare programs. We provide health education to the community through one-on-one counseling, lectures and seminars.
This is accomplished through the He&He network, made up of private citizens, government officials, nonprofits, business leaders and others providing support to the project.
Our work
Health&Help is a non-profit clinic in the mountains of Guatemala.More than 700 patients are examined in the clinic every month; the majority of them are children and pregnant women.
Our programs
Child Hunger Solutions
The child malnutrition rate in Guatemala is one of the highest worldwide. 56.9% of children under the age of 5 in rural communities are suffering from food insecurity. Together with The Department of Health, we monitor infants and toddlers on a regular basis, providing their families with appropriate information as well as malnutrition treatment, vitamins and anthelmintic medication. All children in critical condition are treated under our doctors' supervision at the clinic. Nobody is left behind.
Birth control
More than 80% of women in rural communities in Guatemala have at least 6 children. More than 90% of these women have reported that they would rather not have such a large family. We are introducing birth control methods to the community, offering family planning options, including long-term contraception, to prevent unwanted pregnancy. We believe that every woman has the right to choose when to become a mother and how many children to have. We believe that every life matters.
Motherhood and childhood
The majority of women in these communities do not discover that they are pregnant until the second trimester. This is a very dangerous situation for both the mother and the child as the mother has not been receiving the necessary nutrition and care on time. Regularly they are taking unsafe medication, maternal, prenatal and nutritional conditions are the cause of death for 34% of the population. We are fighting for women's rights to visit a doctor during the early stages of pregnancy in order to protect her and her unborn child's health.
Diabetes
Diabetes (type 1) is a genetic disease, not a result of eating habits, which is responsible for 5% of all deaths in Guatemala. The government is not able to provide treatment for all diabetes patients; therefore we are helping them manage the disease with insulin therapy and education programs. Most type 1 diabetes patients do not seek assistance until they are in critical condition and need to be hospitalized. We are doing all we can to stabilize and rehabilitate them. At the same time we are providing the local community with appropriate information, giving lectures on the condition and how to identify and manage it.
