CHICAGO, IL (June 8, 2018) — Funds are being received to assist survivors of the volcanic eruption in Guatemala that already has killed 99 people, left 200 missing, and forced thousands to evacuate.
“Our hearts break for the poorest of the poor, who are the ones being most affected. We are partnering with local churches to get even more involved in relief efforts,” said Danny Martinez, superintendent of the Central Conference who is originally from Guatemala.
The Covenant is working with several churches in the region that are providing food, water, and psychological assistance.
Volcan de Fuego (Volcano of Fire) “exploded” Sunday, sending ash miles into the sky that fell on communities where only roofs of some homes could be seen.
