Agatha food distribution in Santa Maria - Guatemala

Thanks to the incredible fundraising response from volunteers, ex-volunteers and even people who havn't been to Guatemala, we have started our aid for our communities.

In Santa Maria, where 90% of crops and several houses were destroyed, with many other houses suffering structural damage, and saddest of all, some family members sadly killed, we distributed maiz for tortillas and sugar to each family of our children.

Lack of food, even moreso than before, is now a big problem, and the distribution of the food will feed the family for a month at least. We are working on mid and long-term strategies and aid, which includes seeds and reconstruction. This is all thanks to you, thanks so much, and as you can see in the foto, the people of Santa Maria are very grateful!
