In just one community, over 150 families have had to flee their homes for temporary placement at a local community center. Fortunately, they are safe—however, they are facing shortages of food, medicine, and other vital supplies. Several more communities where CHOICE works are experiencing these immediate hardships.  

CHOICE Country Director, Olger Pop, and our local CHOICE Guatemala team are doing everything they can to provide relief. Roads are closed or collapsed, making transportation difficult for non-local aid organizations. CHOICE is one of the only sources of support in these communities.

Flooding like this not only has immediate destructive impact, but can also lead to health hazards in the aftermath. Lack of access to medical supplies and healthcare are major obstacles, while waterborne diseases become real and dangerous problems. The physical, emotional, and health consequences can be long-lasting and far-reaching.

CHOICE Humanitarian and our donor community are in a position to do something to help. With your generosity, $5,000 can urgently purchase critical items for these families.
