 Such poverty and such isolation is hard to deal with, and Hope of Life is providing desperately needed medical care to such isolated communities, it is a privilege to be able to work with them.

After twenty years sending ocean-freight containers I can say that I have never experienced a mission that is willing to actually do more than they promise. What a delightful surprise. Their work breaks you heart.
Jeanie Kellet, METAD
If the Lord is leading you to go on a mission trip, I highly recommend Hope of Life in Zacapa, Guatemala. Now on my 8th trip, there are a myriad of opportunities to serve, individually, as a family as part of a group. You will be blessed more than you can imagine.

Where we work

In 2009, Guatemala was declared to be in a “state of public calamity” bringing attention to the severe hunger crisis that has been sweeping the nation ever since.

Hope of Life is located in Eastern Guatemala, where severe malnutrition is a result of adverse weather, poor soil, and the global economic turndown. In this area, it is estimated that over 54,000 people go hungry on a daily basis.  With a chronic undernutrition rate of nearly 50%, this makes Guatemala the most undernourished country in Latin American and the fourth highest in the world.
