The Volcan de Fuego Eruptions of 2018
51,730 MEALS RAISED!!
WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE GENEROSITY OF MANY WHO SHOWED LOVE AND SUPPORT TO HELP RAISE FUNDS FOR 51,730 MEALS TO DATE FOR FAMILIES AFFECTED BY FUEGO!
Twenty-seven miles from Guatemala City and 10 miles from the popular tourist destination of Antigua sits the active Volcán de Fuego. The well-known landmark erupted several times in 2018 sending lava pouring into nearby areas and shooting ash 6 miles into the sky. Many fled to temporary shelters as mud and ash devoured surrounding towns.
Supporters donated over $5,000 to help! Our partners at Odres Nuevoa Church and La Promesa School assisted families forced from their homes.
See photos below.
La Promesa and Odres Nuevos team members prepare to distribute supplies of food and beverages for families displaced by the Volcan de Fuego.
An estimated 1.9 million people were affected by the volcanic eruptions. The effects on this country’s health, food and economy will persist long term. We are grateful for partners who are present near these communities who help make a difference to their brothers and sisters who were displaced from their homes.
GUATEMALA IS HURTING, BUT TOGETHER WE CAN HELP.
