Olivia, her husband Arnoldo, and their daughter Maybelline (2), welcomed us to their new home renovation in the community of Mucbilha, Chisec, Alta Verapaz. Arnoldo works on nearby palm cultivation, while Olivia stays at home.
The community of Mucbilha was severely damaged from the storms Eta and Iota.
During the storms, the room the family lived in became unsafe for the family, as rain leaked through the roof.
Through the Project for Humanitarian Assistance Response to Eta/Iota, carried out by Habitat Guatemala with the support of Habitat International, Olivia and her family were able to receive the support to renovate their roof. Now, little Maybelline will grow up in a safer and healthier space, sheltered from the rain and other weather conditions. “Thank you to the donors for providing us with these products. We bless you and your families”. – Olivia Chun.
