Mano con Mano is a nonprofit organization
founded in the 1990's whose primary focus is centered on nutritional, health,
and education ministry in Guatemala. In Mano con Mano's infancy it provided
medical, dental and vision care along with spiritual support to Mexico
and Central America.
In November of 1993,
a team of medical and dental professionals took part in a short- term
mission trip to Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. As an outgrowth of that team,
Mano con Mano Health Reach was born. Repeated trips to Mexico brought
experience and developed the vision that more can be done in partnership
than on an individual basis. Mano con Mano, which means "Hand in
Hand" in Spanish, strives to work in partnership with existing ministries
and outreach programs in Latin America. Mano con Mano missionaries in
Guatemala, working in a remote, rural, Mayan community, noticed the poor
nutritional status of children and pregnant women. This prompted the development
of a community feeding program and construction of a feeding center was
completed in 2006 to serve the nutritional needs. The feeding center has
spawned the development of health and education intiatives in the community
as well. As a Christian organization, Mano con Mano strives to make sure
that spiritual as well as physical needs are met as a part of its outreach.
