On Sunday, June 3rd, Fuego Volcano erupted in Guatemala, affecting many coffee farms and families in the departments of Chimaltenango, Escuintla, and Sacatepequez. Today, they are about 110 casualties, over 200 people reported missing with more than 2000 people directly affected. So many have lost everything, their homes and belongings, and in some cases, entire families.
As a family, bound by coffee, we are starting the Coffee for HOPE Fundraiser in which all funds donated by the coffee community will go directly into helping the Guatemalan coffee workers who lost everything. We will be partnering with Habitat for Humanity Guatemala to build new homes and help those affected, move forward with their lives.
It won't be easy for them to recover emotionally from this tragedy but, as our coffee family, they are not alone.
Today we invite you to join us in the Coffee for HOPE Fundraiser, helping coffee dependent families rebuild their homes. Our hope is to be a loving, global community and to help families start again with strength.
