Thank you so much for your generous support of both our short & long term relief efforts for Guatemala in response to Hurricane Eta!

Our short-term response included providing feminine hygiene kits and materials for temporary housing shelters. The feminine hygiene kit distribution began as a direct response to women's expressed need in the community. It was a repeated issue that emergency aid provided by the government lack essential items for women. Our second short-term response included providing laminate roofing to construct temporary housing shelters.

In the long-term, we will support Mixlaj in relocation. This process includes not just the physical reconstruction of housing and other necessities but researching and selecting a safe relocation zone. Historically, many Indigenous communities in Guatemala have been relocated by the government following a natural disaster without regard for their new location's viability. We are looking to engage in a thorough geographical mapping study to ensure that the community can relocate safely and sustainably, given the likelihood of further natural disasters.
