Since our beginnings in 1997, in AYUVI we have dedicated ourselves to raising funds to be able to provide a free treatment to patients who develop pediatric cancer in Guatemala, giving them the opportunity to fight this disease with dignity.
Our first great achievement was to see the Birth of the National Pediatric Oncology Unit -UNOP-, a hospital that has become a reference center in the treatment of this disease, as it continues to be the only center specialized in the treatment of pediatric cancer, with a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach in the country. In addition to providing medical treatment, we merge several elements in an holistic way that allow us to have a multidisciplinary team of professionals: psychologists, nutritionists, social work specialists, to name a few. Currently we attend about 150 patients in the External Consultation daily, some attend to receive their treatment, others for their regular control and others to receive diagnosis and be able to be treated.
Additionally, in 2017 AYUVI Occidente was born an outpatient clinic located in Quetzaltenango, which serves patients in the area and the AYUVI Hogar Estuardo Mini located on the outskirts of Guatemala City.
