Emergency Artisan Support Appeal

At this difficult time, we wish you health and strength. This is also a time of crisis for the Mayan women we work with and we turn to you to help them through. Due to the halt of the global economy during the coronavirus pandemic and the drastic response in Guatemala, our artisan partners now have no source of income. Mayan Hands is launching an appeal to respond to this urgent need.

With your help, we have implemented a program of direct subsidies to support our artisan partners as they face this crisis. Your donation provides the women with income during this time of immediate need and will sustain them and their families until they are able to return to work. 100% of your donation will go directly to the women so they can support their families.
