Who We Are

ONE Guatemala is a fund started by a family that has deep roots in Guatemala. As Native Guatemalans living in the United States, we feel it is our duty to do everything in our power to help those in need. We are in a far better position to provide for the people in these crucial circumstances that already have a hard time making a living. Guatemala does not have the resources and government assistance programs to attend to this disaster. There is so much destruction and pain in the people impacted by the eruption of the Volcano de Fuego that is about 25 miles southwest of the capital, Guatemala City, and near the colonial city of Antigua.
