GPA Launches the Covid-19 Emergency Action Fund to Help Threatened Mayan Communities

 

At GPA, we are facing the potential devastation of hundreds of vulnerable indigenous communities in Mexico and Guatemala. The ease and speed with which this virus is transmitted could literally wipe out many families in these villages, whose poverty and isolation from healthcare services put them at great risk.

Many residents who had migrated to the US, and other areas are returning home to their families in great numbers, without any preventative measures being taken.

As the virus begins to spread, women and children will be hit the hardest, and maternal and infant mortality rates could skyrocket.

 

To respond to this crisis, we are launching the Emergency Action Fund.

Through this difficult time, our commitment to the vulnerable women, children and communities we work with is stronger than ever. Together we can meet this challenge. Together, the actions we take can make a world of difference in the lives of so many. Please join us.

 

Please read about the actions we will take with this fund.
