Over the past several decades, the people of Guatemala have suffered. From hurricanes, poverty and civil war, they have struggled to survive against odds that most Americans cannot understand. It is very easy for these proud people to get lost in the shadows of the more fortunate countries, which prolongs the poverty and strife.
AmeriCares is a nonprofit humanitarian organization that provides real relief to the people of Guatemala. Since 1986, nearly half a billion dollars in aid has been provided to this impoverished country. Several community projects have been launched, including providing medical care, clean water and hygiene products. These initiatives have also included healthcare worker training, as well as support to help build local economies.
William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty has partnered with AmeriCares to provide much needed relief to the Guatemalan people. We challenged our Associates to support this endeavor and they rose to the occasion. The organization has raised $34,360 in donations and will support six of our sales associates on the ground in Guatemala. William Pitt SIR opened their hearts and clearly demonstrated the extraordinary values held dear by the people in the organization. This contribution of funds and manpower will make a positive impact in that struggling country and support AmeriCares.
