#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, and the widely recognized shopping events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This day sets of the start of the charitable season.
In Guatemala more than 1.8 million Guatemalan families do not have an adequate house to call their own. That is why for this year’s #GivingTuesday, Habitat for Humanity Guatemala is planning to support some of the families who are affected by the housing deficit. By providing them with different home improvements these families will have the necessary tools to improve their quality of life.
WHAT IS THE VULNERABLE FAMILY FUND?
Since 2017, Habitat Guatemala approved a project to work with families who are deemed vulnerable and in impoverished and precarious circumstances, these families may not otherwise be eligible to own a HFHG home due to their extremely low levels of income. Envisioned as a multi-year project, HFHG will work year to year in order to identify appropriate families of the most vulnerable departments in the country.
We hope that because of this campaign we can provide families with a safe place to spend the holidays. However, we can’t do it without your help. Support us in raising funds to buy the materials and construction needed for these families. to improve their homes.
Join in, and help us make a difference!
