In Guatemala it’s estimated over 700,000 children don’t have a birth certificate and it's a highly dangerous place to live for unregistered children.
The XXX children are not recognised by the official statistics and are therefore not protected by the state. This means they can be used, neglected and abused by gangs and criminals. They are at risk of being trafficked or forced into slavery. Or they can simply disappear, and no one would ever know.
