Thanks to the incredible fundraising response from our supporters we have started aid for communities in Guatemala.

In Santa Maria De Jesus, 90% of crops and several houses were destroyed with many other houses suffering structural damage. Saddest of all some family members were killed.

With the funding we distributed emergency food supplies, Maiz for tortillas and sugar to the families of children we teach. The Maiz will be sufficient to provide tortillas for a family for a whole month which will help greatly during this difficult time.

Lack of food, even more than before, is now a huge problem for Indigenous communities in Guatemala.
