#COVID-19 in Guatemala -Girls in Crisis-

Summary

#COVID-19 is overwhelming countries all over the world. But in rural communities in Guatemala living without proper healthcare, clean water or even soap, it will be catastrophic. Healthcare access, soap and clean water to wash our hands, health information, a home to isolate in, are things we have to stay safe. But that is not the case for people in rural communities in our country, where even the basics like soap and clean water are nowhere to be found. That's why we urgently need you.

Challenge

#COVID-19 has the potential to derail a girl's future. The threat of the virus means girls or women are isolated at home to protect their health. But in doing so, they're more at risk of domestic violence. Girls are also more likely to be married off early during times of economic crisis. If schools close, all children will face interruptions to their learning, but for girls this could mean a permanent end to their education. That's why your support is vital.

Solution

We are all part of a global community, and we're facing this unprecedented humanitarian disaster together. At a time when so many people feel so alone, this is our chance to stand together and support those most at risk. By donating today, you can help Plan International provide the soap, clean water and the public health information children and vulnerable communities need to reduce the spread of #COVID-19.

Long-Term Impact

#COVID-19 will affect millions - already vulnerable communities will be decimated by this unprecedented humanitarian disaster. With your support you will help reduce the spread of #COVID-19 and work to exercise childrens rights, specially girls, which are already compromised.
