Funeral costs, clothes, food, water and medical supplies are the basic needs our Guatemalan children have. We are raising money to provide Volcan the Fuego victims, specifically children, urgent basic needs.
Incaparina is a mixture of corn and cottonseed flour with added vitamins and minerals. It's a high-protein food supplement, particularly for children on protein-deficient diets.
Families are standing in long lines to receive help, but our local volunteers are willing to open up their homes to provide a warm meal to local families. This donation will allow our local volunteers to buy food and host victims in their homes.
Children and their families lost everything, most don't even have clothes to wear or a blanket for cold nights. This amount will ensure we buy a child a blanket and provide some clothes.
Local volunteers need supplies to put together emergency relief packs. This donation will provide 25-30 emergency relief packs
We can't control natural disasters, but we CAN take action to support children who are victims of the 'Volcan de Fuego' eruption. After loosing EVERYTHING, families are in need of basic needs such as water, food, clothes and medical supplies and The Orphaned Earring is no stranger at providing this type of aid. Now we need to send triple-quadruple if possible amount of donations to support so children and their families.
Many families have to wait in long lines to receive aid, but we have local volunteers that are on the ground delivering help in the lines while people wait for help and opening their homes.
Thankfully, the 'Volcan de Fuego' eruption did not directly affect the children in the communities we provide ongoing support. However, we can't just sit and witness the pain and devastation while we just count our many blessings.
The money raised will allow us to put together donation boxes full of clothes, gauze, wound care, blankets and possible teddy bears, while pay for expedite shipping to Guatemala and allow us to locally buy bags of incaparina, oatmeal, sugar, rice, beans and other grains, as well as water and supplemental drinks for children.
Thank you for constantly supporting the work we do.
