Best moment of 2010 - Phoenix Guatemala - volunteers´ response to Agatha

The best moment in Guatemala this year followed the worst moment, in May, when Tropical Storm Agatha condemned our communities, and hundreds around the region, to months of hardship as their crops failed and their houses were damaged or destroyed.

Thanks to a truly amazing response from past and present volunteers, we raised a huge ammount of money to help out, buying emergency food supplies, seeds, building materials, rain-coats and further emergency tools.

Despite both crops of 2010 being affected, we have a food plan in place for all of 2011, to help the families recover from the long-term affects that Agatha caused.
