The impact of Hurricane Iota

(November 19, 2020) Just two weeks after Hurricane Eta brought widespread flooding and destruction to thousands of sponsored families’ homes, a second hurricane, Iota, struck the country again. It was estimated that the damage from Iota could be even worse than what Eta caused.

Based on early reporting, our staff is working on establishing contact with volunteers and families. So far, it appears everyone is accounted for, but it will take time to reach everyone. Water levels are receding, but there is still broad flooding and power loss.

Communication will be a challenge for weeks to come, but we will work to provide updates as we receive them.

Our sponsored communities will need help to recover from this storm and get back on their feet.

To help overwhelmed families, donate to the Critical Needs Fund.
