Guatemala Volcano Relief Effort

$29,509 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 326 people in 10 months
This gofundme was at around $8800 raised for our other community projects until it was switched to our current mission. We have just finished our third house for families displaced by the volcanic eruption and are now focusing on improvements of transitional volcano shelters. Over 500 people are projected to live in these shelters for the next 1-2 years. Improvements like rain catchment, clotheslines, retaining walls around the shelter to prevent caving in of the land, gardenization of the shelters with medicinal herbs, ornamental and edible plants, playspaces for kids, paint for housing units that wish to add color to their lives and any other possibilities to serve that we encounter! Thanks for reading! We are a registered non-profit and your donation is tax deductible. Fincas Buenas EIN: 81-0978418 If you'd like to donate directly to my Paypal to avoid the Gofundme fee, I will post it on Gofundme as an offline donation: Jayjackson@fincasbuenas.org
