When war breaks out anywhere, it is often women and children who suffer the most. In Guatemala, thirty-six years of civil war have left many seeking healing from a past of violence and brokenness. Refuge Guatemala is a sanctuary of hope for victims of abuse and exploitation. Within the safety of its walls, wounded women and children find shelter and support as they begin their search for healing. Depending on each woman’s needs and skill set, suitable job training or educational opportunities are provided. Whether it’s creating coffee jewelry or sewing aprons, the work is an essential part of the healing process. It gives the women confidence, a sense of self-worth, and a new future through financial security and self-sustainability. Will you join them in this work of restoration?
