Coronavirus has touched every corner of the world including our small area in paradise. Large swaths of the Guatemalan population live hand to mouth and now as there is no work there is no money and no food on the tables.
The country has been locked down with no transport, a nightly curfew, and very restricted travel since mid-march. Many groups and organisations are working very hard to try and provide food packages to the most vulnerable people and families.
Ninos del Lago, based in Panajachel, is one such NGO. As Vice President of the board I accompanied the team one day during Phase I of their Food-Aid Program to help communities close to San Andres Semetabaj, close to Pana.
