2020 El Salvador Storm Season Relief Fund

The recent tropical storms Amanda and Cristóbal claimed 30 lives, destroyed hundreds of houses, affected bridges, obstructed streets due to landslides, and led to the evacuation of thousands of families. The Minister of Agriculture and Livestock has reported 29,527 acres of affected crops and a loss of harvest of 284,411 quintals of basic grains, affecting 22,476 producers. In Bajo Lempa, the Octavio Ortiz and Amando López communities have lost entire family farms, as well as their corn, vegetable and banana crops and two major community fisheries production projects.


Fortunately, the sun is now shining over most of the country and storm systems have moved north, and at this time, Voices on the Border is working with the communities of Amando López and Octavio Ortiz in their efforts to restore their massive loss of crops and livestock. If you want to express your solidarity with these families, consider making a donation to this 2020 Storm Season Emergency Relief Fund and, in doing so, create a little hope for them, as they navigate two major crises.
