Itzapa receives maize after Agatha thanks to your support - Guatemala

Thanks to your fantastic support through our justgiving site we handed out 150 bags of maize last week to our families – enough for one month's food. The few crops that they had been able to salvage from last year's bad season were lost in the storm and the families were left with nothing.

Next we have roofs and walls to put back together. After that is done we will look to the future; to planting new crops to replace the ones lost and to help them prepare for any future natural disasters.

We really couldn't have done it without your support - the mothers queuing out the door with smiles on the faces waiting for their maize just shows how happy they were. Next week we will hand out the sugar - just like in Santa Maria.

If you would still like to support GVI and the families in Santa Maria and Itzapa please donate here. Thank you.
