Hurricane Iota and UPH
Our partners at Urban Promise Honduras in Copan, Honduras report tremendous damage from back to back major hurricanes.
They have asked for any help we can give so today we are collecting funds to be sent to UPH for disaster relief.
Hurricanes Eta and Iota left a path of widespread destruction across the valley of Copán. Electricity, internet and cell phone outages have left many people incommunicable for days on end, and with no clear end in sight. An already fragile infrastructure of highways and bridges appears to have been obliterated in some areas. There is one major road in and out of Copan, but flooding and landslides have made it largely impassable. Families have been forced to evacuate, entire agricultural areas have been destroyed, and an emotional fog has settled in as the community rallies to rebuild.
Blair Quinius writes, "We will continue to find unique and effective ways to meet the most urgent needs of the community, whether its food distribution or fire truck-shaped pinatas for the first-responders. It may be weeks or even months before a sense of normalcy returns for many families, but we will be doing whatever we can to serve, every step of the way.”
