The recent eruption of Guatemala’s Fuego Volcano is said to be the country’s most violent eruption in more than a century. Thus far, it has been blamed for more than 110 deaths and, according to authorities, has affected as many as 1.7 million people in the surrounding communities and countryside.
 
Following the eruption of the Fuego Volcano, villages on the slopes of the volcano and in the surrounding countryside are covered in thick blankets of ash and mud. More than 3,000 residents have been forced to evacuate their homes, while many more begin the long process of digging out and cleaning up. Experts warn that the region is at a heightened risk for mudslides when seasonal rains mix with pockets of ash and debris.
 
Consider supporting one of these highly-rated charities providing on-the-ground support today. These organizations have received 3- and 4-stars and are confirmed to be working in the area to help evacuated residents and those affected by the eruption. You can designate their donations to this cause on the organizations’ respective websites.
