Layette Kits Gifted to New Moms in Guatemala- Midwest Mission Distribution Center

Bringing a new life into this world is a beautiful thing. A newborn brings joy and love like no other into the lives of moms and dads. But, with the joy comes the stress of taking care of the baby, and meeting their needs. For mothers in Guatemala, that stress and worry about taking care of their newborn is amplified. 

In Guatemala, almost 60 percent of the population lives under the poverty line. As a result, malnutrition and lack of medical care are widespread. New mothers have to make serious choices about how they will spend their money to best care for the life of their child. Many sacrifices have to be made.
