“All of your support for Concern America goes directly to support our work here in Guatemala, in different projects such as water testing, improved stoves, environmental health trainings in the communities, all of the health promoters and midwives, the health care that’s provided in the communities, as well as in our practitioner-run health clinic in Las Cruces. It also supports all of the patients that have few resources. “

Celebrating community and global action

For over two decades, Concern America has brought together a local community of global hearts to raise funds for communities as they build collective power and self-sufficiency through healthcare, clean water, education, and economic opportunities.
By walking in our own communities and neighborhoods, participating in an activity for our Walk Out of Poverty event, fundraising, donating, or even sharing with friends and family, your time and contribution changes lives and supports the health promoter practitioners, midwives, water system builders, and artisans who work every day to transform their communities.
