Strength in Solidarity

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken an undeniable toll on people around the world. Several months into this emergency, Latin America continues to see a rise in cases as many countries attempt to return to normal. As quarantine measures continue, hunger plays a larger and larger role in the everyday life of communities across El Salvador and Honduras.

Despite these challenges, resilient communities are working together to survive this disaster. Local community groups have become a saving grace for those unable to leave their homes for food or medicine. Environmental leaders have become relief project coordinators. 

Our partners have been learning from, working with, and serving their communities for decades. When the Mangrove Association helped 98 families in surrounding villages establish their own home farms, they weren’t strangers handing out needless items to nameless faces - they were helping their neighbors and friends in the best way possible.

The Women’s Association of Barra de Santiago (AMBAS) set up sanitation stations because they knew how many community members barely had enough water to drink or cook with, let alone practice regular hand washing. Red COMAL was able to improve food security in 7 Honduran communities by working with local producers to provide basic grains to over 200 families.

Years of working hand-in-hand with communities has built trust between these small organizations and those they serve. Our partners have helped thousands survive by listening to the needs of their communities and giving everything they had to get them through this ongoing tragedy. With your support over the years of our partnership, they have built the experience and capacity needed to care for their communities in the face of this disaster.

Thank you for the dedication, care, and solidarity you have given to our partners and their communities when they have needed it most.
