Latin America is comprised of the South American continent, Mexico, Central America and the islands of the Caribbean. For years the region, which is home to over 40 million people, has been plagued by drought, conflict, poverty, high unemployment, human rights violations, natural disasters and unstable governments.
Healthcare coverage is a persistent issue in Latin America. A growing number of households spend at least 10% of their budget on out-of-pocket health expenses.
35% of the population lacks access to safely managed drinking water.
Of 185 million people living in poverty across the region, 66 million experienced extreme poverty and those numbers are expected to rise.
The Global Impact Latin America and the Caribbean Fund brings together four of the most respected, best-in-the-business international organizations focused on helping those in the region: Pan American Development Foundation (PADF), Project HOPE, Rise Against Hunger and SEE International.
Through this fund, you will join with millions of people to change the world by helping to provide increased access to healthcare and education, job training, women’s and youth empowerment, economic development, and a host of other services to those in need throughout the region.
Your contributions go directly to supporting real and meaningful work to improve the lives of those living in Latin America and the Caribbean.
