popoyo storm victims
Hello to all my friends, family and contacts. I am Marc Bonds, owner of hotel Cafe Con Leche in Popoyo, NIcaragua. As you know we were just hit by a severe tropical storm here in Nicaragua. All the Cafe Con Leche staff lost little that they had. I went to visit all of them and it’s a true disaster. Jenny, Jonathan, Lus, Jose, Octavio, Osman, Jorge and Marlon and their families are mostly down to what they were wearing when the river took away their homes. The goal is to rebuild them homes and purchase what they need to survive (beds, fridges, clothes, food...). I will personally will be in charge of getting the money withdrawn from the account and I will be buying construction materials and hiring a construction crew. Please help my Nica family with whatever you can. Thanks in advance on my behalf and all of the Cafe Con Leche family.+ Read More
Thank you so much to everybody that has helped this cause. We will forever be grateful towards all of you. We have reached our goal thanks to the last event held at Don B Comber in Montreal so we will close the campaign. We so far have bought food, clothes, appliances, school supplies, built one home and are fixing a few homes this week. We will keep posting photos of all the construction work in the next couple weeks. Once again thank you everybody on my behalf and all of the Cafe Con Leche family.
Delivery day. Thanks to Magnific Rock for lending me their truck!
We just did a big shopping day to refurnish the staff’s houses and we will start construction of Jonathan’s and Jenny’s house tomorrow! Thanks again to all the donors. Every penny counts!
So amazing all the generosity we are receiving. We reached 6800$ so far and a special thanks to my friend Tash for her big push! For now still sticking to the essentials which are food and water and soon will start building and fixing homes. Thanks again to all of you.
