Help me Help Guatemala

$1,175 of $1,500 goal

Created June 6, 2018

Hello friends and family. Today I have decided to help my people in my parents country Guatemala. As you all know by now, Guatemala’s volcano of fire erupted. (This just so happened to occur while my mommy is visiting her parents there). My family has been actively working on gathering donations of clothes, food and sanitary needs. However, from speaking with my cousin, Jorge Pacheco, I have learned that what they are lacking is medication. We all know that many are in need of treatment and medication is scarce. My uncle is an MD and he has the ability to treat many just not the finances to help them all. Here is where YOU ALL COME IN...  Every dollar counts, as cliche as that may sound. But it truly does. Most people who are victims are from indigenous pueblos and have very little to start. Let’s show my family and the people of Guatemala that we care. Help me Help them. Thank you all in advance. 

My my cousin will provide me with receipts of any and all transactions made with the money we raise. I will post them here as this occurs.

Te cuento que ahorita regresamos de alotenango de entregar la donacion de Angela, nos dieron al grupo mas dolido, que a perdido a la mayoria de sus familiares, ya que la medicina que se les llevo les ayudara a sus nervios, sustos fuertes que han tenido, y todo lo que tenga que ver con el sistema nervioso, ver los rostros de esas personas es bien fuertes te dan ganas de llorar , Jorge David les dijo algunas palabras, Jorge Armando les mandara los videos cuando regrese de la Merced, solo un bombero nos alludo grandemente, por el pudimos entregarselo directamente a la jente, porque todas las donaciones que dan las guardan o se las roban, pero nosotros nos sentimos creidos porque logramos darselas a las personas en las manos,gracias a Dios. y gracias a la noblesa de Angela y todos los que colaboraron.
$1200 THANK YOU EVERYONE

New Urgent warnings to those in Antigua, ciudad vieja and San Miguel. The volcano is expected to erupt again. They are urging residents to keep there distance as a large number of ash is expected to cover these cities and once more put everyone’s health at risk. :(
ITS NOT OVER.

The search for cadavers has begun. I’m speechless. My primo, Jorge Pacheco sends me daily updates and these pictures just broke me. They are not only helping people but animals. Your donation will help purchase medication to treat those that are wounded and help with recovery. Please consider a small donation and help me help Guatemala. We have reached half of my goal.
