Guatemala in urgent need

Guatemala Hurricanes Iota Eta

RipplAffect in collaboration with several SDA churches in Chicago providing safe water after hurricanes Eta and Iota devastation in Central America.

We invite you to join us in raising funds for Water Filtration Systems for the humanitarian crisis in Guatemala – an effort in partnership between LaGrange Brookfield and several other Chicago SDA Churches and RipplAffect.

Guatemala Hurricanes Iota EtaGuatemala was badly hit by both Eta and Iota hurricanes in November 2020, leaving behind thousands of victims homeless and with nothing to eat or drink. Water filters for clean safe water seem to be the most in need at this time: therefore, with your help, RipplAffect would like to provide as many water filters as possible for this region. We already have funds for 500 filters but would love to send more, so we ask for your help. The cost of the Water Filter is $25 per piece, and will provide clean safe water for families in need. You can read more about the challanges for humanitarian response to hurricanes Eta and Iota HERE.

PROJECT UPDATE: Distribution of water filters in Guatemala started in early May, so here are several photos from distribution and with families that received water filters:

Since May 2021 you are able to see all the water filter distributions that happened since January 2021 on our Sponsorship Map. Here is also a short video from recent filter distribution in Guatemala:


Please help by donating today as one-time or a recurring monthly donation to support the victims of Hurricanes in Central America and around the world. Your contribution will make an impact, no matter how much you donate! One hundred percent of your donations will go directly towards buying and shipping the filters for Guatemala or other areas in need.



RipplAffect is an all-volunteer nonprofit humanitarian organization which has provided portable water filtration systems to Haiti, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Kenya, Uganda and Yemen and provided estimated 15,000 people with clean and safe water for years to come. To support these and future efforts please consider monthly donations so we will be able to respond right away when the next Tornado or Hurricane hits.

Thank you for your continued support!
