Storm Touches Tiquisate

Tropical Storm Agatha has touched the Trees, Water & People (TWP) community!  In Pueblo Nuevo Tiquisate, Guatemala, where TWP’s Program Director Leonel Jarquín is mayor, 2000 families are now living in shelters! Many roads that connect Pueblo Nuevo to larger cities are washed out or covered by landslides, and helicopters must fly in food and water.

Trees, Water & People  is committed to helping the people of Tiquisate through this traumatic experience, and is calling on you to support us in this process.  We have committed to matching the first $10,000 in donations that we receive for our Guatemala Emergency Relief effort.  Funds will be used to feed, clothe and provide medicine and medical assistance to those most affected in Tiquisate, and will be donated directly as emergency relief to the mayor’s office, for use at its discretion.

This community will need much work and sustained effort to rebuild and to ensure its food security over the next year.  Mayor Leonel is committed to leading this process with TWP’s assistance. Please join us in extending a hand to this vulnerable community where so much of TWP’s work has taken place over the past 12 years.  Working together, we can provide tangible relief for the families of Tiquisate, Guatemala.
