Guatemala children touched by nuns' grace

In the absence of state help, nuns provide education and healthcare to children from indigenous Maya.

    As members of the Catholic Church wait for a new pope to be appointed, devotees across the world continue to conduct religious and social services for those in need.

    In the absence of state help, nuns in Guatemala are providing education and healthcare to children from the indigenous Maya population, some of the country's poorest people.
