Guatemala Volcano Relief

The deadly eruption of Guatemala’s Fuego Volcano on Sunday 3rd June has caused the destruction of many nearby villages, with the official death toll now soaring to 70 people, and up to 200 more feared missing. 

Following initial assessments with local authorities and the National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction (CONRED), Action Against Hunger’s emergency water and sanitation (WASH) team is ensuring access to clean water in the ten emergency shelters that have been set up.

The team will also proceed with the cleaning of wells and water systems and assess the impact of the disaster on the livelihoods of the population, as well as supporting immediate finanical needs via economic transfers.
