Disaster Ministry

CEDEPCA’s Disaster Ministry works with individuals and communities so that when extreme events happen, they won’t become a total disaster for the community. Changes in the world’s climate have made Guatemala one of the most vulnerable countries. We can’t stop hurricanes, tropical storms, earthquakes, or volcanic eruptions. But CEDEPCA’s prevention and preparation training can reduce impact and strengthen resilience to help communities recover more quickly. When disasters do occur, CEDEPCA responds with material aid, and with psycho-social and spiritual support, continuing to work long after the initial emergency has passed.

The Water Filter has been a gift, a blessing that CEDEPCA has provided for our families.
