La Vida has been supporting projects in Guatemala since 2008

Guatemala is a country of striking features and a strong indigenous culture. Social inequality is a major feature of Guatemala. Poverty is particularly widespread in the countryside and among indigenous communities.
Mayan languages are spoken alongside Spanish, the official tongue.

Steven' s Family

Stephen

Stephen Joseph De La Cruz is albino. He has skin problems and very acute short-sightedness which upsets his studies. He has four brothers and a sister who suffers from the same conditions.

His parents cannot afford to send him and his sister to a school that would take into account his special needs.

A monthly donation of £17 over a year sponsors a child like Stephen to attend school.
