Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos™ Guatemala is home to over 300 children, many of whom come from difficult backgrounds where they did not have access to adequate care, food, shelter, education, or healthcare. When they arrive at NPH, these needs are met. Among the most important for these boys and girls from at-risk backgrounds are healthy, filling meals. Food is a critical part of our children's lives. Food empowers them with the essential vitamins and nutrients to grow, play and learn. A full stomach is a happy stomach and never is that more true than for our children, who often suffered from hunger and malnutrition before joining our family.
The NPH cooks work hard every day to ensure that the children receive nutritious, satisfying food. Three times each day, the kids from the home gather in the dining hall to share meals together. Providing a variety of fruits, vegetables, meat, and grains ensures the children are receiving the most nutritious diet possible. Additionally, specialized diets are required for the most vulnerable children in the household including children under five years old, children with special needs and those who have a chronic illness.
Thank you for considering our many needs to ensure that our children grow in a healthy way. Please help us by contributing to their daily diet.
