COVID-19 is affecting us all. In Guatemala, schools and non-essential businesses are closed, public transport has been suspended, and market hours are significantly reduced. While these restrictions are important to stop the spread of the virus, for many families living in rural Guatemala, there is no work which means there is no way to put food on the table. This crisis is exacerbating the issues that already exist – unequal distribution of wealth, corruption, and poor healthcare infrastructure.
Mil Milagros is committed to giving vulnerable families in Santa Lucía Utatlán the best chance to fight COVID-19 by providing emergency food and hygiene supplies, masks, recipes and educational videos.
$25 can provide essential food and hygiene supplies to one child for a month
$50 can provide masks to 50 people
$150 can prevent malnutrition in a baby by providing vitamins, food, and hygiene supplies for the year
$250 can produce one cooking video to share healthy recipes on local cable
$500 can provide the monthly salary and health insurance for one community coordinator so she can provide for her family
Your donation will benefit 1,648 children and their families living in rural Guatemala who need support during this difficult time. Give today and your gift will have twice the impact!
