Sadly, the covid pandemic brought our dreams to a temporary halt. Quarantine mandates made it impossible to deliver building materials and to travel to oversee construction projects. The last 18 months brought urgent needs, including shortages of medical personnel, loss of family income, and grave food shortages in the region. With your donations we are meeting the additional needs to sustain Q’ero families throughout this crisis.
Your donations are feeding Q’ero families in this time of crisis.
We recently provided thousands of pounds of seed potatoes throughout the communities.
The covid crisis is not over, but we are joyful to announce that the completion of the high school classroom and teacher dormitories is underway! Our field director, Bertha Ramirez, has resumed delivery of materials and construction of the projects.
Bertha’s work requires her to risk her life and health, traveling long distances on a narrow dirt track through rugged terrain in rain, sleet, and snow. Bertha’s heroic efforts are turning Q’ero dreams of education into reality.
