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 medical care 24/7, constantly introducing public health care programs and offering proper information to the community. This work is accomplished through the Health&Help network, made up of private citizens, government officials, nonprofits, business leaders, and others providing support to the project.
Our work
Health&Help is a charitable clinic in Guatemalan mountains. More than 700 patients are examined in the clinic every month; the majority of them are pregnant women and children.
Our programs
Child Hunger Solutions
Child malnutrition rate is one of the highest in Guatemala: 56, 9% of children
under 5 years old are suffering from food insecurity in rural communities.
Together with The Department of Health, we offer solutions by overseeing
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 enter into a marriage as
teenagers - at the age of 12 - and become a mother of six children on average.
More than 90% of them would rather not have such a big family. We are
introducing birth control methods to the local 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.
Motherhood and childhood
The majority of women find out they are pregnant in the second trimester.
This is a very dangerous situation for both the mother and the child as the
mother hasn't been receiving the necessary care and nutrition on time,
probably, has been even taking unsafe medication. Improper communicable,
maternal, perinatal and nutritional conditions are cause of death for 34% of
the population. We are fighting for women's right to visit a doctor during the
early stages of pregnancy in order to protect her and her unborn child's
health.
We believe that every life matters.
Diabetes
There are a lot of people, suffering from type 1 diabetes, in Guatemala. This is
a genetic disease, disconnected with eating habits, which cause 5% of all
deaths.
The government is not able to provide treatment for all diabetes patients,
therefore we are helping them to overcome the disease with insulin
treatments. Most of the patients arrive to our clinic 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 public health.
