Guatemala Volcano

CRS is responding to Sunday’s “Volcan de Fuego” (fire volcano) eruption in Guatemala, which left entire communities buried in ash. The death toll from the volcano– currently at 70 – is expected to climb into the hundreds as rescuers make their way to villages devastated by the mixtures of hot gas and rock – known as pyroclastic flows -- that swept down the volcano’s slopes.

The impacted areas of Guatemala include Chimaltenango, Escuintla and Sacatepéquez districts.  (approx. 3 hours from our sister parish in San Miguel)

CRS is coordinating with the government and local actors, including the Church, which has opened three shelters and is providing food, water and other necessities to those displaced.
