Kenneth D. Nahum, DO, an oncologist and hematologist with Regional Cancer Care Associates, LLC, in Howell, New Jersey, has helped others throughout his three-decade medical career. In partnership with Cross-Cultural Solutions, Dr. Kenneth D. Nahum worked with children with disabilities in Guatemala.
Cross-Cultural Solutions operates two major programs in Guatemala. One program focuses on childhood education, while the other focuses on children’s health.
Guatemalan schools lack basic resources and have difficulty retaining students after the sixth grade. These conditions make it difficult for these children to escape poverty. Cross-Cultural Solutions partners with local schools to provide resources for education and support engaging activities and lesson plans.
The health system in Guatemala is underfunded, and Cross-Cultural Solutions works to provide public health services that directly benefit children. Common issues include vision and dental care, as well as improvement of sanitation services locally. Through the installation of hand washing stations and disease prevention workshops, it also works to curb the spread of disease.
