As a company situated in Germany, daily we see the contrast between a country that can help out its citizens and companies by all means necessary, and our new home, in which until three months ago there was a single hospital, treating cases of COVID-19, and less than 100 medical ventilators for a country of 17.25 Million. We see our neighbors in need and have decided to do everything we can to help them.
White Flag Coffee
– 100 % of the profit are donated for food, hygiene products, and medicine.
Almost 60 % of all people in Guatemala live off their daily earnings, thousands on less than a dollar a day. Through the pandemic now also this meager income has fallen away. Together with our coffee producer, Teodoro Engelhardt of Finca La Bella, we have created a community-blend of his coffees, which we offer our roasters in Europe as “White Flag Coffee”. The profit from the sale of this green coffee goes 100 % to aid organizations here in Guatemala which helps people to support families with food, hygiene articles, and medicine.
Together with our roaster-partners in Europe we, in this crisis, hope to make a difference for those who are most strongly hit by the health-related, economic, and social effects of this pandemic. We are proud that our roasters support us in this endeavor, they offer our White Flag Coffee freshly roasted with artisanal sophistication and made with love.
The profit from the sale of White Flag Coffee goes 100 % to aid organizations here in Guatemala and is evenly distributed among our partners.
With all additional donations, we can also support long-term projects: Community Gardens, Job-training, help for single parents, medical projects, and many others .
To be able to reach as many people and families as possible, we work with experienced and ambitious partners. Personal contact and shared trust are important to us. Our partner organizations believe as we do, that active help and long-term solutions for our neighbors is a priority now. Each partner focusses on different regions and different groups in need.
