Communities are coming together to support each other during this crisis

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken an undeniable toll on people around the world. Several months into this emergency, we continue to see a rise in cases in El Salvador and Honduras as we attempt to return to normal. As quarantine measures continue, hunger plays a larger and larger role in the everyday life of the communities we serve. Despite these challenges, we are working together to survive this disaster. Local community groups like the Mangrove Association, Red COMAL and The Women’s Association of Barra de Santiago (AMBAS) have spend years working hand-in-hand with the communities we serve. We have helped thousands survive by listening to their needs and responding quickly.
Thanks to your suport, these are a few things we've accomplished:
The Mangrove Association helped 98 families establish their own home farms.
AMBAS set up sanitation stations for community members who barely had enough water to drink or cook with, let alone practice regular hand washing.
Red COMAL worked with local farmers to improve food security in 7 indigenous communities in Honduras by providing basic grains to over 200 families.
With your support over the years of our partnership, we have built the experience and capacity needed to care for each other in the face of this disaster. Thank you for the dedication, care, and solidarity you have given us during this difficult time.
