In light of the current global outbreak of COVID-19, BTS has made the decision to arrange for all three BTS Cooperants in Guatemala to return back to Canada. We’ve taken this decision after much deliberation and consultation, in order to prioritize the health and safety of our Cooperants.
We hope to welcome BTS Cooperants back to Guatemala once restrictions are eased and the virus is under control.
BTS staff living in Guatemala will take necessary precautions to remain healthy and will continue to be in communication with our partners, as well as provide updates to the network.
Our thoughts are with people in Canada and Guatemala, including our partners, during this undoubtedly difficult time. Much strength and courage for the upcoming weeks to all of you, hoping you stay safe, healthy and always passionate about life and justice. Thank you for supporting our work and that of our partners here in Guatemala.
