Guatemala Volcano Disaster Relief
On 3 June, the Fuego volcano erupted for the second time in 2018, launching columns of ash and pyroclastic flow some 15,000m above sea level and spreading west and southwest. The debris generated by the thunderous explosions travelled some 40km, carried by westward winds, affecting the north-western, northern, and western areas of the country. Several moderate pyroclastic flows descended towards populated areas depositing large amounts of ash and rock.
All funds donated to FAST for this effort will be used to provide these necessary items.
With over 70 individuals killed and nearly 200 others still missing, this disaster has already devastated many lives. We are working to provide the resources necessary to aid the survivors of this tragedy. Currently we have been able to install a 250-gallon water filtration system and are quickly working on securing food and medical supplies. All funds donated to FAST for this effort will be used to provide these necessary items. On behalf of the survivors, you have our gratitude for your support.
