Adventist Families Lose Crops and Homes After Guatemala Volcano Eruption
ADRA is assisting them and many others with water, food, and supplies.
The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) in Guatemala, with the help of its church member volunteers, is distributing water and food to families displaced by the deadly volcano eruptions in the south-central region of Guatemala. The Volcano of Fire began spewing lava and ash on June 3, 2018, covering villages, leaving more than 75 dead and more than 200 persons missing, government officials reported.
More than 1.7 million people have been affected by the eruption. Over 3,000 persons were evacuated, and more than 2,600 persons are in shelters. Hundreds more are stranded inside their homes across the rural communities of Escuintla, Alotenango, Sacatepéquez, Yepocapa, and Chimaltenango.
