Natural disasters are always frightening, but few match the horror a volcano can unleash in minutes.
Over the past several weeks, the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii has continuously spewed lava and ash, destroying over 600 hundred homes and displacing people and animals. Then, on June 3rd, the Fuego Volcano in Guatemala violently erupted, creating a crisis that Guatemala has not seen in a long time. The official death toll is reported at 99, with hundreds still missing and an estimated 3,000 people displaced. Some sources say that over a million people and animals will be directly impacted.
While teams of volunteers are still searching for survivors, our partners on the ground will be working on immediate relief—providing medical supplies, water, and food for both people and animals affected. We will be supporting local partners that will provide the difficult long-term recovery for the families affected.
You can help! Every donation helps us respond quickly, and enables us to stay the course until affected families and communities are fully healed, rebuilt, and resilient. Please support this vital, ongoing work rebuilding lives and communities.
With more than 500 volcanoes active throughout the world, injury and loss of life, job, and home is more common than many of us realize. Eruptions cause immediate, catastrophic damage to communities nearby from lethal hot gases, projectile rocks, and destructive lava. Eruptions can also trigger avalanches, falling ash, flash floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, and destructive mudflows. Your support makes recovery possible for victims.
