Response to the Fuego Volcano Eruption
The Fuego Volcano, located 27 miles southwest of Guatemala City, erupted on June 3, 2018. Initial reports indicate 75 people have died, around 50 people were injured, and almost 200 people are missing. These numbers are expected to rise. The health of 1.7 million people may be affected by ash inhalation and acid rain.
Mission & Service partner ACT Alliance, in part supported by contributions from The United Church of Canada, is responding on the ground. ACT Alliance is focused on food security, water, sanitation, health, nutrition, shelter, and psychosocial support.
Please pray for those affected by this emergency. We are also accepting donations at https://www.united-church.ca/guatemala-volcano
