Five months after our initial response actions, our partners and staff in Guatemala confirm that the situation throughout the country continues to drastically deteriorate, despite the Guatemalan government’s assurance otherwise. It is evident that Guatemala along with the majority of Latin American countries are entering a long haul, with difficulties stemming from the pandemic and as a result of the inadequate response by governments to place human rights above their own agendas for profit and the economic interests of industry.
OUR COMMITMENT TO JUSTICE, HOPE AND SOLIDARITY ON A LOCAL AND GLOBAL SCALE MUST CONTINUE.
It is in this spirit that we ask you to help us support our partners as they work in defense of the land, territory and human rights amidst the troubling times ahead. Your donations to our COVID-19 Solidarity Fund for Guatemalan Partners will go entirely to support local led initiatives on the ground and provide much needed relief.
WE HOPE TO RAISE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE BY SEPTEMBER 21, 2020.
