Crib Sponsorship Program

Sponsoring a crib at Casa Jackson Hospital for Malnourished Children is a unique opportunity to support the rehabilitation of the boys and girls who enter Casa Jackson.

The internationally-renowned “Casa Jackson Hospital for Malnourished Children” is a registered hospital and provides intensive residential survival, medical, and long-term recovery-care to severely malnourished infants and children from across Guatemala.

Chronic malnourishment plagues Guatemala with greater frequency and severity than any other Latin American country.  Since inception, Casa Jackson has rehabilitated and saved the lives of over 1,000 malnourished children.  Some children are sent to us from local hospitals, some are brought by their parents, and some are left on our doorstep.

Estimates suggest that over 50% of the children of the country are malnourished.  The consequences of the condition include: stunted growth, brain damage, xerosis, follicular hyperkeratosis, fatigue, emotional distress, and death. Over half the children between one and five are afflicted with these conditions in Guatemala.

In addition, Casa Jackson volunteers and staff educate villages and families in proper health, hygiene, and nutrition practices.
