Guatemala – Operation Baby Rescue

<  View All Programs


In Guatemala, one out of every two children under the age of five is chronically malnourished. Most live in rural communities in the mountains, hours from access to clean water, medical care, or education.

How it Works

The rural mountain communities of Guatemala are home to some of the world’s most severely malnourished children. Once identified, these critically ill children are rescued and transported to nearby clinics and hospital facilities for immediate medical intervention until healthy enough to return to their families. Continued care is also available for children who are left physically or mentally disabled from the effects of starvation and disease through a special needs center onsite.


Our Partner

Our partner on the ground in Guatemala is Carlos Vargas . . . and together we’re working to save a generation. His team is helping us save as many innocent children as possible, nurse them back to health, and restore their futures. Over the years, he’s been instrumental in the rescue of 4,000 children—changing the course of their stories from tragedy to transformation!
