Rain and Sand Don't Mix...

This last week I visited a friend's church in Zone 21 of the Guatemala City. You can walk out the front door of their church and see the Volcano Pacaya in all of its fury. They received a significant amount of the volcanic ash that fell after the eruption. Before they could clean it off, Tropical Storm Agatha soaked the ash with rain. Bad things ensued.

The roof collapsed during services. Thankfully, no one was hurt. But this is a church that needs a roof. They have packed into a provisional roof half the size of what they need. A replacment roof is estimated at Q30k - Q35k - this is about $4500 dollars US. As of today , they do not have the means to replace it. If you would like to help, please contact me I will show you how.
