Wuqu’ Kawoq Obtains Funding for Child Nutrition Project


Wuqu’ Kawoq has just received word from the Child Health Foundation that our grant application “Addressing determinants of child malnutrition in a rural Guatemalan village” has been funded. This grant, which represents a significant expansion of our clinical activities in the region of Socorro and Chocolá, is focused on addressing the epidemic rates of childhood growth stunting in the region. It represents yet another effort by us and our community partners to integrate culturally and linguistically appropriate primary care services into the larger context of community revitalization.
