CEDEPCA has always been committed to an education that transforms, enabling participants to bring about positive change in their homes, churches, and communities. CEDEPCA’s Disaster Ministry works with individuals and communities so that when extreme events happen, they won’t become a total disaster for the community. Changes in the world’s climate have made Guatemala one of the most vulnerable countries. While we can’t stop hurricanes, tropical storms, earthquakes, or volcanic eruptions, with much less money than it takes to respond to a disaster, CEDEPCA’s training of prevention and preparation can reduce impact. When disasters do occur CEDEPCA responds with material, aid, psychosocial and spiritual support, continuing to work long after the initial emergency has passed.
