AYUVI: Saving Guatemalan Children with Cancer 

The diagnosis of cancer in a child or teenager is devastating news for the whole family. AYUVI mobilizes the support and required resources to sustain the National Pediatric Oncology Unit Hospital –UNOP-, the only national hospital specialized in the treatment of pediatric cancer in Guatemala.

During the last 17 years, our hospital has diagnosed over 5,000 children with cancer. About 70% of our patients come from poor/rural backgrounds and 50% of them suffer from some degree of malnutrition when diagnosed.

Come and learn about our efforts to save the lives of children with cancer!
