Cafe Justicia Network raises over $27,000 for CCDA's hurricane relief

By admin - Posted on 06 July 2010

Supporters of the Campesino Committee of the Highlands (CCDA) in Canada have so far donated $27,348 to the movement's efforts to assist members and neighbours who lost homes and crops to a series of storms that hit the Guatemalan highlands in the past 2 months. The CCDA is using these funds to assist members in repairing and rebuilding thier homes, to buy new seed for replanting lost crops and to provide food for members until the new crops can be harvested.

Additional funds have been sent by the Maritimes' Breaking the Silence Network and CoDevelopment Canada. Readers of Spanish can follow the CCDA's reconstruction work at We list below the people and organizations that have contributed to this work via Cafe Justicia BC. Thank you to all!
