The territory of modern Guatemala once formed the core of the Maya

was conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century, becoming part of the

From the mid to late 19th century, Guatemala experienced chronic
instability and civil strife. Beginning in the early 20th century, it
was ruled by a series of dictators. From 1960 to 1996, Guatemala
endured a bloody civil war.
Since a United Nations-negotiated peace accord, Guatemala has witnessed
both economic growth and successful democratic elections, though it
continues to struggle with high rates of poverty, crime, drug trade,
and instability. As of 2014, Guatemala ranks 31st of 33 Latin American
and Caribbean countries in terms of the Human Development Index.

currently gathering information and pictures on the people, villages
and hospitals that we are assisting in this very impoverished region.
