AITI in Guatemala


A group of experienced AIT Therapists, with the help of Caritas Archdiocesan Foundation started travelling to Alotenango, in Guatemala, to help and support survivors from the volcano tragedy.

Since the first eruption of Volcán de Fuego, this group of therapists are providing direct clinical attention to people that suffered trauma were needed.

A lot of people lost family members, their homes, their land, and their jobs. With AIT therapy, they can deal with this difficult situation in a better way.
