Fuego Eruption Emergency Relief

On Sunday,  June 3 the Fuego Volcano in Guatemala erupted, wiping out several communities in the path of the falling lava and ash. 

We are raising money for the families in Los Lotes, El Rodeo and other neighboring communities located in the foothills of Fuego that were in the path of the eruption and lost everything. Specifically, we will put the funds collected toward the following to help the affected families to survive these immediate days after the eruption and to begin rebuilding their homes:

- food
- flashlights and batteries
- shoes
- personal hygiene items
- blankets
- furniture (tables, beds, chairs)
- basic kitchen supplies
- tin sheets for roof and house construction & building supplies
- toys for small children

These funds will be received by Amigos de Vamos Adelante (http://www.vamosadelanteproject.org/) and then immediately put in the hands of the Foundation Vamos Adelante
(http://www.vamosadelante.org/) - both are 501(c)(3) organizations. Vamos Adelante has served the affected communities for more than 20 years. Listen to Director, Nina Jorgensen, report on the catastrophe during an interview with Jerome McDonnell at WBEZ Chicago on Monday, June 4:
