History Logs

Project Description

Country: Guatemala

Location: Central America

Total Budget: $4,000

Areas of Focus: Water and sanitation, Economic and community development

Activity Type: Community Development: Disaster Recovery

Summary: Provide four (4) Shelter Boxes to volcano victims in Guatemala

The Chandler Horizon Rotary Club would like to send 4 Shelter Boxes to the victims of the Volcan de Fuego, a stratovolcanco about 25 miles South West of Guatemala City, which has erupted several times since 3 June, 2018

Many small communities around the volcano's base have been swallowed up leaving families without anything.

Not only has this region seen the destruction of several volcanic eruptions since 3 June 2018, but also on 17 June 2018 they had recorded a 5.6 earthquake.

The CHRC is applying for a $2000.00 DDF grant and the club members will put in another $2000.00 for a total of $4000.00 which would be used to purchase four (4) Shelter Boxes to be sent to Guatemala.

The CHRC would work together to raise the funds needed to match the DDF grant.
