Getting back on track after Covid-19

The coronavirus pandemic has changed the ways we live in more ways than one. Here at Compartiendo Nuestras Bendiciones we have had to change the way we currently work. Our Eco-Change Program has been on hold the past few months and we are currently reworking the program to come back better than ever once the government restrictions lift. Once the area schools are opened back up, we plan to organize campaigns with students in a local middle school to educate students on the hazards of single use plastics and inspire youth to recycle their plastic wastes into eco-bricks for the benefit of their school. We plan to continue using these eco-bricks to build more rainwater harvesting systems in areas with water scarcity. While likely we will have to adjust our approaches in light of the pandemic, we are looking forward to the day when we can get back to work. We thank you for your support.

Getting back on track after Covid-19

When we started planning this project several months ago, we had no idea how our lives and work were about to be impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. In the interest of our community members safety, this and all projects which require the gathering of people in groups have been canceled. We are planning and getting ready for the day when government restrictions are lifted and we can once again get together in groups. Our group of kids are also eargerly awaiting the day we can start up this project as they have been largely confined to their homes for the past 3 months. It is our hope that the next project report we send will be to update you on the inauguration of this project. Thank you for your support!

We just wanted to take the time to thank you for your donation and to give you an update on how we are putting it to good use. Thursday April 23rd our team members delivered the first selection of emergency pantry supplies to 30 needy families in our area. So far we have funds to provide emergency pantry supplies to a total of 128 families, which is an amazing impact in our community! April 25th we handed out 33 more pantry supply packages to needy families. We are focusing our efforts on households who have placed a white flag at their door to indicate that they no longer have food as well as households with elderly people (who are recommended to avoid leaving their houses) and households with people with disabilities. We have included photos of some of the families who have already received emergency supplies, however a more complete selection of photos appears on our organization facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/compartiendo.nuestras.bendiciones.Guatemala/media_set?set=a.276560683350870&type=3.

We hope you will visit us there and check out the project album to see exactly which family or families your donation helped. We will keep you updated on our project progress.

Thanks again for your donation,

Colleen Supanich
