Manos Abiertas serves a population that cannot afford health care.
We strive to keep our services affordable and we provide care to all women without discrimination.
Your support makes a tremendous difference to Guatemalan women and their families. Here’s how you can help:
$240 sponsors a safe, humanized, natural birth with full prenatal care for a woman with few resources and whose chances of dying during child birth are 67 times higher than her American counterpart (Click here for more information about how to Sponsor a Birth)
$110 provides personalized, comprehensive prenatal care for a woman, including lab tests, ultrasound, folic acid and other supplements, education for a healthy pregnancy, as well as two postpartum consults
$40 allows 1 woman to choose a family planning method best suited for her lifestyle for one year
$15 funds one gynecological consult with cervical cancer screening, the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women in Guatemala
