From Houses to Homes - Covid-19 relief fund

Hi all,

After an endless quarantine in the United States, I finally made the long 36-hour journey home to Antigua, Guatemala. With the airport shut down, I was forced to cross the border by foot from Mexico to Guatemala to make it in time for our 6:00 pm curfew. As I made my way through the country, I was disheartened by the lines of families waving white flags as a symbol of utter surrender. For the many Guatemalans who already struggled to buy food every day, unemployment due to the virus is making feeding one’s family much more difficult, if not impossible. The virus has halted the country and left families with no other choice than hoping that their white flag will get them their next meal. 

Guatemala has been struck especially hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, and as I approached my third week here, I was left dumbfounded to the growing problem in the country as our quarantine continued to be extended. I was then presented with an opportunity to support a local nonprofit organization called From Houses to Homes. The organization builds houses for the less fortunate, created a free community school, and opened a small clinic that serves the low-income, rural, and indigenous population in Guatemala. However, due to the pandemic, the organization is now launching a fundraiser for both a new Covid-19 relief grocery delivery program, as well as, direct support for their school, Escuela Kemna-Oj, which is continuing its learning remotely through distributed worksheets and books. 

From Houses to Homes rewarded me with the opportunity to support their nonprofit organization by fundraising for their Covid-19 relief fund. Any donation is incredibly impactful to many families and I thank you in advance for your generosity. Whether you are in a financial position to donate at this time, I would appreciate it if you could help spread the word about this cause. Feel free to forward this GoFundMe to any other friends or family who may be passionate about this cause.

Thank you so much for your support! Please feel free to reach out to me personally if you have any questions. 

Lastly, here is a brief introduction to the organization: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=imf2pw_b2Ps&feature=emb_title
