While the global pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus continues to impact the daily lives of nearly everyone across the globe, many Healing Nations partners are seeking ways to continue caring for the poor and the vulnerable within their communities. Healing Nations is partnering with them to help provide for their efforts.
100% of the donated funds through this campaign will go towards the specific ministry efforts detailed below. Please pray and consider if God might be leading you to help care for our global neighbors during this time of unprecedented need.
Shortly after the first case of COVID-19 was reported in Guatemala, all schools, churches, restaurants, malls and any other non-essential businesses were closed. Public transportation was banned and modified hours for banks, grocery stores and markets were implemented. A mandatory curfew from 4pm until 4am was put in place and wearing a mask in public became a part of life. The two Source of Hope schools have been closed and most of the families whose children attend have been out of work due to the increased restrictions. These families live day to day and do not have bank accounts or extra money saved in case of emergency.
Iglesia Galilea is putting together food packages with basics for the families at both schools as well as other struggling families within the different communities where they serve. More than two hundred families are on their list with each receiving the following – beans, rice, corn flour and other essential items. 100% of the funds they receive will be used to provide for these families until they are able to return to previous jobs or find new employment.
