Default Caring for Ones Own

There has been a massive drive around Xela the last few days, collecting food and clothing to help out with the disaster around Fuego Volcano. We’ve noticed schools being drop off points for donations in their large auditoriums. Banks have been accepting deliveries and then sending loads away in larger trucks. Passing by the main Police Station, the same efforts were evident. The officers obliged in my taking a photo of them. A very generous spirit in the Guatemalan communities.

The human spirit can be formidable as a force for good! It’s heartwarming that aid is being organized for folk they mostly have only heard of their need!
