VOLCANO FUEGO

DISASTER RESPONSE AND RELIEF

ash coveres

Guatemala is the ONLY country to follow the USA and move their embassy to Jerusalem and recognize it as Israel’s capital. Regardless of politics Guatemala is a friend of the Jewish people and stands with us.
We stand with the Guatemalan people in their time of need.

Chabad of Guatemala serves Guatemala from Guatemala City to Antigua with centers in both cities and has been on the front lines in helping Jews and non Jews alike. It is our obligation to help all in need It is true Tikun Olam.
The Fuego volcano in Guatemala erupted on Sunday, June 3, 2018, 1.3 people have been affected. As always, Chabad sprung into action playing a critical vital role in the initial response.
With hundreds of Israeli tourists in the area, parents call Chabad to find their children before calling the embassy. Members of Chabad worked around the clock and located and notified family members that their loved ones were safe.

Chabad continues to work around the clock assisting and providing for those in needs. The Chabad house is open to ALL in need and is providing food and water, clothing, medical assistance, and critical supplies. The costs are staggering.

 

Chabad’s Disaster Relief Center

We need your help. We can not do this without your generosity.

There are approximately 900 Jews living in Guatemala today. Most live in Guatemala City, Quezaltenango and San Marcos. Today, the Jewish community in Guatemala is made up of Orthodox Jews, Sephardi, Eastern European and German Jews.

Now the work has just begun. Chabad is caring for all, Jewish or not. Supplying shelter for the displaced, food for all, medicine, and supplies.

There is absolutely no way for us to do this without your help.

relief 1

Rabbi and Mrs. Pelman have been in Guatemala for 18 years and have become an integral part of Guatemala for all people of all origins and religions. Chabad serves thousands of tourist per year providing kosher food, Shabbat meals and lodging, and other assistance.

This is a humanitarian crisis, and as emissaries of the Jewish people it is our obligation to help all.

Chabad has taken in and cared for all people in need.

The Chabad house is full to capacity with displaced persons who have lost everything.
This fund will provide relief to people impacted by the volcano in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, and medicine, blankets, clothing, in addition to longer-term recovery assistance to help residents. All donations to this fund will exclusively support disaster relief and recovery efforts in Guatemala

Challenge

The eruption spewed a deadly mix of ash, rock, and volcanic gases more than six miles into the air. The eruption killed more than 60 people, hundreds still missing in Guatemala and injured hundreds. More than 3,000 people have been evacuated from their homes. Chabad is responding to survivors’ immediate needs and have asked us to help fund their relief and recovery efforts.

Solution
All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for areas in Guatemala affected by the volcano. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to this disaster.

Long-Term Impact
We believe that organizations, such as Chabad, that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like this eruption. By funding the relief efforts of Chabad, donations to this fund build stronger response capacity so that we are better equipped to face future challenges. will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.

Your contribution is 100% tax deductible in the USA and 100% of funds donated to Chabad will be used for humanitarian relief efforts. NO funds will be used for any other purpose or general overhead.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the manager of this campaign, Rabbi Aharon Sirota st 720 987 6724.
