Humanitarian aid – Guatemala – Eruption of Fuego volcano

Following a request for international aid from the Guatemalan authorities, France is working to provide support for populations affected by the eruption of Fuego on June 3.

The Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs’ Crisis and Support Center has just granted a subsidy to a project run by the non-governmental organization CARE to provide water, as well as medical and sanitation supplies and equipment, to populations in need. In addition, the Ministry funded the shipment of more than 400 kg of equipment donated by the NGO Pompiers de l’Urgence Internationale and intended for local populations.

In consultation with the Guatemalan authorities, our embassy is overseeing the coordination of French aid with that of other donors.
