The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has already affected the families we work with along with our staff of dedicated employees. President Alejandro Giammattei has ordered all schools, health clinics to close and we have discontinued all building so as to protect our men and the families we work with.
Please make a gift today. The long-term effect on our organization may be catastrophic.
To date we have lost $62,000 in donations as a result of cancelled volunteer groups.
There are no unemployment benefits of any kind in Guatemala. We want to continue paying our staff. The effect on their everyday lives would be detrimental without receiving their salary.
When this is over our clinic will be in great demand as many of the people we work with will not be getting their needs met during this time. For example, many children come to the clinic for nebulizer treatments as a result of living in a home with no stove. The long-term effect of breathing smoke compromises their health already.
As our budget did not prepare for a pandemic we expect to experience financial challenges when this is over. Please consider a gift today to help us to continue the important work we do:
$30.00 - Provides a family of 4 with groceries for a month
$50.00 - Allows a person to see our general practitioner and receive the necessary medication (when our clinic resumes)
$60.00 - Student Sponsorship for a month
$500 - Is the average monthly salary for a member of staff
$720.00 - Student Sponsorship for a year
$2,000.00 - Provides a home for a family
Thank you in advance,
The From Houses to Homes Team
