Fundraiser for vulnerable families in Guatemala

It is a difficult time for many in our global community, but more so for indigenous families who do not have savings or income to survive this global economic crisis caused by the Covid-19.   The suspension of local business, employment, tourism and transportation is especially felt in an isolated village like San Marcos La Laguna where families live on a more day to day basis with few reserves to sustain their households.  Currently, access to food staples are increasingly difficult. Our goal is to provide staple foods to the most vulnerable families: elderly, sick, single parents and those without employment. As more funds are raised we will be able to increase our outreach as well as provide for a longer period. Key organizations: local churches, Konojel and the Municipality have provided a census so that we can determine which families are in the most need at this time. We are honored to partner with Konojel Community Center who together with each care package will include a diverse assortment of fruits and vegetables. Coffee, eggs and local herbs have also been donated from other local businesses and organizations. We are humbled and overwhelmed with the support from each of you. Thank you for your donations and we wish you continued health and blessings from our small village San Marcos La Laguna.
