Guatemala Volcano Relief: Helping Children in Need

Summary

Fuego Volcano has affected over 2 million people. Our Diaper Drop, Casa Jackson of The God's Child Project, is treating children with 1st, 2nd, & 3rd degree burns, as well as children separated from families. This is the greatest disaster Casa Jackson has ever faced, and this project will help supply diapers to families in need.

Challenge

Fuego Volcano has displaced many families, families already living in dire poverty. They are now living in crisis, with both health issues and homelessness resulting from Fuego Volcano. This project provides cloth diapers to Casa Jackson for inpatient use, as well as kits for families impacted and displaced by the volcano.

Solution

Diapers are an overlooked basic need. When we think of disaster recovery, we tend to think food, clothing, shelter, and water. Just 12 cloth diapers can diaper a baby from infancy through potty-training, completely meeting the diapering needs of children, the most vulnerable population when disaster strikes.

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations continue to have their diaper needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements in their care. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these babies up for long term survival and productive members of society. But that's not all. With our Maternal/Infant Outreach, both infant and maternal mortality decrease, thus helping to reduce the orphan crisis.
