“Three Generations of Q’eqchi’es women celebrating life with breastfeeding”

Alta Verapaz. Department of Guatemala. The Q’eqchi’es are one of four groups that make up the Mayan people. As with other native groups of this land, the q’eqchi’es have been systematically discriminated against by the State. In a situation of extreme poverty, very far away from the benefits of development and facing threats of climate change, grandmother, mother and daughter – three generations of women – happily celebrate life with breastfeeding.
