Mothers in Guatemala need so much support.... I watch their worn faces and see the worries they have of 'how do I feed my children their next meal, let alone next week!' This pot of food hopefully will feed several hungry families of Dads, and all the children and last.... the mothers themselves. Each bowl is carefully poured out... no mistakes can be made. Every mouthful counts!!! Water has been added as much as possible to make it stretch, so it ends up being watery but at least it's soup for the day.
And so sadly.... for thousands across Guatemala it will be the only meal of the day! Dads have to eat first, as they are the ones out trying to bring in some sort of substance for their families. Children next.... as they are deeply loved (as all parents do) and the moms will eat whatever is left. They will put themselves last never thinking of themselves in their devotion to care for their families.
