Update on housing rebuild in Guatemala

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

We're delighted to share progress pictures from our rebuild project in Guatemala to help resettle some of the thousands of displaced families made homeless after the volcanic eruption earlier in the year.

Our partner on the ground is building family units for the victims of the volcano eruption. These families are still living in shelters, such as public schools. The cramped conditions mean that up to five families are forced to share a single classroom space to live in.

We're supporting the build of more than 250 units to benefit families and provide them with their own safe and secure space to call home. The units are located in Escuintla, right in front of Alotenango but out of the risk area.


If you would like to offer your support to families who have lost everything, please do visit our donation page.


Not only will those affected need assistance with furnishing their homes and starting their life from scratch, but families will need to develop a means of livelihood to support themselves.

Your continued support of our campaign is much appreciated.

“I thank you for believing in Guatemala and helping the most vulnerable of its communities. Thank you for your help in the times when we need it the most! Without your help starting over would be much more difficult.” Maria, part of the Project Management team at Fundación Junkabal, our partner situated in Guatemala City.
