This June, the Sacatep茅quez and surrounding regions of Guatemala suffered the worst eruption of the nearby Volc谩n de Fuego in a century, resulting in the deaths of over 100 people and the destruction of entire communities.

In response to this tragedy, our plan is to work with聽Julio Garc铆a, director of the school and NGO Asociaci贸n Bendici贸n de Dios in Alotenango, with whom we have partnered many times in the past. Bendici贸n de Dios serves many of the families that were directly affected by the volcano. Julio also lives in Alotenango, which has been the staging ground for relief and rescue efforts. If you would like to support the efforts of Asociaci贸n Bendici贸n de Dios to help affected people, please use the PayPal link below.

For the reasons above we have full confidence聽that these gifts will be directed to those most in need. NHI/ACE has determined with Julio that it will be best to wait for a couple of weeks to distribute the funds to the Asociaci贸n, when first responders are no longer in the picture. Once the funds have been shared with聽Bendici贸n de Dios, we will continue to monitor the situation. Muchas gracias.
