Paul Pascoal, ELC’s International Program Director, has been in communication with Katie Arriaza, President and CEO, Hope of Life, our Guatemalan partner. She states that, at the moment, an emergency evacuation of all HOL personnel, families, and orphans from the HOL village is underway.
The torrential rains and sustained high winds have caused the nearby river to flood, threatening to submerge the entire area. There are immediate needs of shelter, food, potable water, blankets and clothing for those displaced.
