About Us

UNUM International is a Christian non-profit who seeks to address, educate, coordinate, and provide aid and relief to eradicate chronic malnutrition, physical and spiritual hunger, and illiteracy in Guatemala.  

We envision a world where individuals are free to dream without the constraints and worries of hunger, malnutrition, and the limitations of illiteracy, and will make every effort to provide an environment in which individuals and communities can thrive, with the end that chronic malnutrition, hunger, and illiteracy are eradicated. UNUM International seeks to provide a holistic model of care- of the mind, body, and spirit, with the aim of improving the quality of life in a sustainable manner, so that individuals are empowered and equipped to live lives of purpose and meaning.
