Hurricane Odile was the strongest hurricane on record to hit the Baja Peninsula since 1967. The storm caused widespread destruction from high winds and flooding, especially within vulnerable artisanal fishing communities. Las Pacas suffered extensive damage, leaving local people without homes or sanitation.


Olazul will support disaster recovery to help the people of Las Pacas rebuild their homes and restore basic necessities. This fund will provide critical assistance for shelter and sanitation to help people struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Odile. As an organization with roots in the community, Olazul is well-positioned to help the people of Las Pacas get back on their feet.
