Meet Maria as she makes bòxból, an indigenous dish, from the comfort of her new home. Maria is one of thousands who has been displaced from Guatemala, her home country due to climate change.

Climate change disproportionately affects women, children, Indigenous people and people of color. As an indigenous woman from Guatemala, Maria has experienced first hand the detrimental effects of global warming.

In places already grappling with high levels of poverty, corruption and conflict, the effects of global warming may reach a fragile tipping point for some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.

Climate change is real. Climate change is everywhere. We must act now and focus on long term solutions for subsistence agriculture as well as humanitarian aid to tackle immediate needs, like fighting hunger and malnutrition.
