CADENA Guatemala is born out of the need to deliver quality humanitarian aid to the most vulnerable communities in the country.
It was the third CADENA office to be formed. After the San Marcos earthquake, Mexico felt the imminent need to ally with our Guatemalan brothers to face this emergency. From there, a close relationship of mutual support has been established in the face of natural phenomena such as earthquakes in Mexico or volcanic activity in Guatemala.
LINES OF ACTION
We carry out missions to gather needs in the first 72 hours after a disaster; subsequently, we turn to deliver supplies, and grant medical and psychological consultations to the affected populations.
Education and Training
We approach teens from middle school onwards with different informal education programs that encourage them to become activists and agents of change and help to sow the seed of humanitarian action.
Social Entrepreneurship Competition
Our social entrepreneurship competition for high school students ranging from more than 10 countries. The goal is to propose an idea for better prevention or response to disasters.
