Guatemala's Volcán de Fuego erupted explosively on June 3, sending cascades of pyroclastic lava down the volcano’s slopes. Currently, the death toll stands at 100 and 179 people are still missing, with ash covering nearby towns and burying coffee plantations. More than 3,000 have been evacuated from areas threatened by the lava flows and photos show distressed locals fleeing barefoot and covered in mud and ash.
Rescue workers have been battling with the ash and debris to find those trapped after Sunday’s eruption, but searches have been intermittent due to dangerous conditions for rescue workers.
Help us bring help to the victims of the Volcano and raise money to buy equipment for the rescue teams (which are mainly volunteers without proper equipment) such as boots, masks, suits.
