Dear friends and supporters- I want to share a quick update on our recent hurricane relief work. I recently wrote you about effects of the hurricanes that hit Central America last month. One community in Honduras that we have visited often was especially hard hit with their community water system destroyed and the families drinking water from the local streams., but with your support we were able to start helping rebuild their water system better and stronger than before. Unfortunately, the hurricanes and flooding damaged many communities throughout the region, including ones that Agua Pura knows well in Southern Mexico. GlobalGiving granted Agua Pura emergency funds to help with relief work and so we applied some of the grant money and $3000 more of your donations to helping families in 3 traditional Mayan speaking communities that were flooded and many homes destroyed. We worked through a local non profit, Diaconia Chiapas, whose members live and work in the area. They were well organized and quickly mobilized to provide emergency help to affected families with children and the elderly, including food aid and sanitary supplies such as soap and face masks. Though this is just temporary aid, it made a huge difference to the families that received it. After the flood waters subside and the families start rebuilding, Agua Pura will be there with them to assist with clean water and safe sanitation, and your continued support will make it possible. We thank you for your generosity and will keep you informed of our progress.
