CENTRAL AMERICA IN CRISIS

THE VICTIMS OF HURRICANES IOTA & ETA NEED YOUR HELP

Central American Hurricane Relief

Hurricanes Iota and Eta pounded Nicaragua, and Honduras, and brought torrential rains and flooding to those countries, as well as parts of Guatemala. The human costs are heartbreaking– horrible flooding, high winds, and landslides. Families who narrowly escaped with their lives, now face urgent needs for housing, clothes, food, clean water, and other basic needs. Hurricanes are hitting Central America while it is still reeling from the COVID-19 global pandemic, and Black and Indigenous communities who already suffer from historical patterns of exclusion and discrimination, are experiencing disproportionate devastation. We can help!

 

Presente.org has teamed up with Alianza Americas, and the Hispanic Federation to support this urgent relief campaign. We invite other organizations to join us in this urgent mission and in our ongoing efforts to support Latin American and immigrant communities impacted by COVID-19 and intersecting crises like the climate emergency. We deeply appreciate the Hispanic Federation’s generous kick-off match for the Central American relief fund.

Our partners are already helping displaced people— rushing food, blankets, and temporary shelter to the most affected areas. Your contributions will put desperately needed resources in the right hands, right away. Because we are in this for the long haul, we will stay to make sure that communities can heal and rebuild.

Every day, we are sending urgently needed funds to groups doing work directly on the ground. Today, donations were sent to:
