Guatemala Guatemala

Guatemala, which means “place of many trees” in náhuatl, is especially rural, and devoted to its autochthonous culture and Mayan heritage. Between 1960 and 1996 it endured a long civil war, known as the “Internal Armed Conflict” which left more than 200,000 victims. Fundación MAPFRE supports a project in Guatemala which benefits 1,300 people.
