San Pedro Carchá, Guatemala - February 2021 - The Salesian community that pastorally cares for the municipality of Carchá, one of the most affected by last November's hurricane, continues to accompany and help the Q'eqchi indigenous communities, which have remained isolated and damaged. With the logistical support of the Salesians, Fr Antonio de Groot, of the Don Bosco Center, Fr Vittorio Castagna and Fr Jorge Nolasco, more than two and a half tons of food were delivered to 454 families of 7 Q'eqchi indigenous communities this past 19 February. The Salesian missionaries and the Don Bosco Center have given continuous assistance during the emergency and implemented reconstruction projects in favor of the most vulnerable in the region.
