In the face of the health emergency caused by the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic, Guatemalan sugar mills show solidarity and donated 1 million USD to equip the temporary hospital to be installed on the South of Guatemala.
These resources will be used to acquire medical equipment that will enable the temporary Hospital to be installed on the South Coast in order to be prepared for the medical care of people in the face of the threat of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Contributing to the Government’s efforts to serve the population in these difficult times is part of our commitment as a sector with the well-being of Guatemalan families. Likewise, we continue to produce sugar, under strict security measures, so that it is not lacking of this essential product in homes and energy to continue lighting Guatemala”, said Vila.
Asazgua made a call on all Guatemalans to unite and take care of each other following the instructions issued by the Government to deal with this global emergency. This is a critical moment and requires of all the world to be united to overcome it.
