Challenge

On June 3rd, 2018, the Fuego Volcano erupted, affecting over 1.7 million Guatemalans, leaving 110 dead, 197 missing, and thousands evacuated and in temporary shelter. Although many organizations are responding to the immediate needs of families (with food, clothing, and shelter), these families also need help over the coming weeks and months to recover their homes from the damage of the eruption. Habitat for Humanity Guatemala will work with families to rehabilitate and reconstruct their homes.

Solution

Habitat for Humanity Guatemala will respond to the needs of affected families in two stages: Relief and Recovery. In the Relief stage, families will be provided with water filters and Emergency Kits to clean and rehabilitate homes. In the Recovery stage, families will be supported to construct new homes, sanitary latrines, and smokeless stoves.

Long-Term Impact

The Disaster Relief and Recovery program will support over 13,000 Guatemalans affected by the Fuego Volcano eruption to recover their homes, which will ensure that these families have adequate housing in the long-term.
