Continual rains bring further crop damage

Unfortunately after the brutal damage inflicted on fragile communities in Guatemala the weather has continued to bring destruction with continual heavy rain causing fatal mudslides and further crop damage.

Many people in the Indigenous communities simply don't have food or money to sustain themselves and worry greatly about next year into which they will bring no reserves.

Donations so far have been greatly appreciated and helped us to supply emergency food supplies, fast growing crops, building repairs and structural reinforcement in preparation for the next time. In the schools we have also been able to give the kids raincoats to help prevent them from getting drenched each time they walk to school hoping to reduce illness.
