$22,506 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 202 people in 6 months

30359928_1528118115.5709_funddescriptionOn Sunday June 3rd. Guatemala had one of the worst volcano eruptions in many years. Taking the lives of many and leaving thousands displaced and with nothing but the cloth they were wearing.

My name is Gabriela Martinez Benecke and Im joining forces with Malu and Jose Toledo, all Guatemalan born and raised.  Together we are raising money to buy food and supplies to take directly to affected families, that we know, of workers from Club La Reunion.  Many lost everything and their loved ones.   I’ll be traveling there on Wednesday and will buy food, supplies and give money personally to these families.  Anything helps!

We almost reached our $5K goal but now we raised it to $15K!!  We are gathering the information of the families that lost everything and are in need of the most help.

As we mentioned in our previous update, we will use the funds to help build houses for some of the victims of the volcano Eruption. But we also got to help in the last couple of days, three more people that unfortunately lost their loved ones. We help them through a cash donation to help them buy things they immediately need. They also lost everything they worked so hard to Build. We pray for Don Domingo, José Pérez and Sarai Lopez Toma. And again thank you for your help!

We raised so far $12,870 and more to come! We would like to share some news. We will be using the collected funds to build houses for some of the victims that we’ve met. This will be an ongoing process, but our goal is to provide these families with a safe place to rebuild their lives. We will send updates as we continue to raise money for this project. Please keep sharing!

Today we went to deliver some medicine for kids and adults to a shelter in Antigua that is helping aid workers and other shelters around the area. They are doing an amazing job of reaching communities and people that haven’t been reached yet. It is heartwarming to see the solidarity of our fellow Guatemalans. Everybody I know is helping somehow. More to come tomorrow!
