Help Survivors of Central American Flood Disaster

$887 $24,113
Raised Remaining


The project will provide emergency assistance and long-term reconstruction to areas in Guatemala and El Salvador that have been affected by flooding caused by Hurricane Stan.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

More than 300,000 people have been affected, and of that number, close to 200,000 are currently displaced. Up to 670 deaths have been reported, and this is expected to rise as rescue teams delve deeper into affected areas. Hurricane Stan destroyed this year’s crop, which will likely trigger severe food shortages for at least the next several months. Due to the destruction of infrastructure and floodwaters, many small communities remain isolated and with little access to assistance.

How will this project solve this problem?

CARE aims to support a minimum of 30,000 disaster-affected people in 134 shelters in the hardest-hit areas. We see a three-phase strategy for our response to the disaster: Emergency Response, Recovery and Rehabilitation, and Reconstruction.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will provide emergency relief assistance and long-term reconstruction to victims of Hurricane Stan in Guatemala and El Salvador.
