Two quetzales left

Marcela and grandkids

Marcela Puac is a 59-year-old mother of seven. From an early age, Marcela was responsible for the care of her home and her nine siblings. Marcela’s life has been marked by abuse and suffering.
Her husband, an alcoholic, physically abused her constantly. The beatings were so severe that she is now bound to a wheelchair. This caused Marcela to grow bitter, building a tough exterior and not allowing others to participate in her pain. She now is responsible for the care of her grandchildren since her own children must leave for weeks at a time to find work and support the family. As we shared the Food Pak with Marcela and her family, she broke down in tears as she shared with us that that day she only had two Quetzales (the equivalent of $0.25 USD), and was not expecting to eat or to be able to feed her grandkids.

77,372 meals were distributed in Guatemala during the second quarter of 2013.

Remember, 100 percent of all donations made to the USANA True Health Foundation ALWAYS go toward changing lives across the world.
