Hurricane Eta has ravaged much of Central America, including the areas where we work in Guatemala. Landslides, flooding, and infrastructural damage have killed at least 150 people and recovery will take years. Immediate support from the government and NGOs provides food & water, but lacks other essential items for women. Highland Support Project is fundraising to provide feminine hygiene kits, baby formula, and vitamins. They will be delivering these goods in-person to ensure their arrival and distribution.
We are providing emergency response to the devastating effects of Hurricane Eta. The Indigenous women we work with consistently face several layers of discrimination as women, Indigenous, and often low-income. This discrimination makes natural disasters even more harmful.
We will be providing feminine hygiene kits, baby formula, vitamins, and other essentials. These goods will help support the women in the immediate aftermath of the hurricane and set the foundation for long-term recovery.
