The people of Guatemala went through a terrible civil war from 1960 to 1996. During this time 200,000 Mayans and poor Latinos were murdered, thousands disappeared, and many were tortured beyond description. The people of Guatemala are still in recovery.
Since 2006 volunteers from the United States have gone on Mission trips to the remote mountains of Jalapa. The volunteers have held free medical clinics, donated clothing, distributed food, and held Bible seminars.
In 2010 the same volunteers established a 501(c)3 non-profit organization entitled BROKEN CHAINS FOR HUMANITY, INC. Donations from individuals and businesses are tax deductible. Our goal is to bring hope and healing to the people of the mountains.
For two weeks a year doctors, nurses, and laymen will hold free medical clinics.
Last year we saw 800 patients. We are planning to make more trips each year. At the present time, we are fundraising for a 10 year old boy who is in dire need of heart surgery. He and his family have been told that if does not receive the necessary heart surgery that he likely has less than one year to live.
Every year boys and girs die from malnutrition in the Jalapa area. a growing number of families are moving to the Jalapa garbage dump to find things to eat and sell – just to survive. The boys and girls walk barefoot through the dump on a daily basis looking for food to eat. Unfortunately, they compete with large pigs, infected dogs, and ravens. We have handed out hundreds of large food bags to these families as well as to the earthquake and flood victims in this area.
Every trip grace-centered seminars are held each evening, pointing people to a compassionate God who so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but shall have everlasting life. (John 3:16).
We are accepting pre-owned ambulances and large vans to convert into mobile medical and dental clinics. We will be training local medical personnel to visit towns and villages on a monthly basis to hold free clinics.
One of our long term goals is to build a school that is especially geared to serve the children of the Mayan community in Guatemala.
