This past week has been almost too much to bear for everyone in Alotenango, the surrounding communities and for those of us who love Guatemala. The devastation wrought by the eruption and pyroclastic flow from Fuego Volcano on June 3 was tragic. 114 villagers were killed, thousands injured and whole towns obliterated. Hundreds remain missing, including one of our young students.
But, the outpouring of support from UTSM friends and from so many other NGOs has eased the immediate burden of providing food, clothing and shelter to those effected. We are gratified by your incredible generosity. In just eight days, we raised over $3,500.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
The Under the Same Moon Team
