On June 3, 2018, the Fuego Volcano in Guatemala began its second eruption of the year with strong explosions, lifting columns of ash as high as 10 miles above sea level. Communities were buried with volcanic matter, affecting more than 1.7 million people, including an estimated 664,000 children.
UNICEF is working to protect the children and adolescents affected by the eruption of Guatemala’s Fuego Volcano and are committed to helping those affected survive and stay safe and healthy.
Whenever and wherever disaster strikes, UNICEF provides lifesaving emergency support including clean water, food, protection, shelter and healthcare. UNICEF also works to help get kids back to learning so they can regain a sense of normalcy and get back to what kids do best — build the future.
