Volcano Relief in Guatemala

Personal Info

Donation Total: $50.00

Iris Santander and her family operate the Backyard School and she has also recently implemented the Better Futures Project aiming at bettering the lives of women in the community by providing opportunities to attend sewing and cooking and educational classes and participate in bunk bed delivery within her community.

Recently, Iris was asked how others can provide relief to those stricken by the June 3rd eruption of Volcan de Fuego.  She has indicated that some individuals displaced from the volcanic eruption are living in a shelter in her village’s town center and, with any donations, she will arrange for medical care and medical supplies to be brought to those affected.

Guatemala Service Projects has worked with Iris and the Backyard School in the past, and they are also the emphasis of one of our major projects in 2019.  All funds raised through this link will go directly toward volcano relief.

If you’d like to see what was done with the first batch of donations, check out our blog post:  https://www.guatsp.org/2018/06/06/volcano-relief-efforts/

Thank you for your help!
