Shortly before midnight, August 30, 2017, Tropical Storm Lidia came ashore directly over San Jose del Cabo in the Los Cabos region of Baja California Sur, Mexico. During the ensuing 24 hours, Lidia devastated the area, dumping over 50 inches of rain accompanied by wind in excess of 65 miles per hour. The destruction was massive. If you have ever visited Los Cabos, you know that its people work very hard to assure you have a memorable stay.
You now have an opportunity to repay that love
Scores of resident of Los Cabos are in dire need of immediate assistance. Many areas in the poorest communities have been destroyed, leaving thousands homeless and without even the most basic necessities such a food and water. Many locals are working to help, but we need your help by way of cash donations.
We will mulitply the effectiveness of your donations, and be certain they are funneled where most needed by uniting the efforts of two organizations that have for many years worked to help the people from those areas hit the hardest. These organizations are Fundacion Tres Deseos and the Knights of Cortez.
We will use your donations to purchase the raw food products needed to prepare meals for those who have no means available to do so on their own. Sissy Plemmons, long time resident and owner of the Bajo La Luna Restaurant has offered to prepare the food for us for FREE! The volunteers from Fundacion Tres Deseos and Knight of Cortez, will then deliver approximatly 100 meals every day to feed the needy.
Any additional monies collected will be used to purchase and distribute much-needed basics like:
Your donations through this GoFundMe site, along with many local donations, will go a long way toward restoring these devastated areas and giving hope to those who have lost everything. There have been lives lost, homes and businesses destroyed. The community has, as it always has, worked together and begun rescue, cleanup, and repair efforts.
I have lived in Los Cabos now for almost ten years. I lived through Hurricane Odile and watched how our freinds and neighbors came to the aide of those in need. I have become friends and know many of those most adversly effected by this storm. These are wonderful, loving and karing people who need our help.
Los Cabos and it's residents are a family of caring, loving, and hardworking people. Without being asked, hundreds of our neighbors left their own problems behind and came to clean up the tourist areas so that our visitors would enjoy their stays. It is time to repy their efforts!
Government resources are stretched to the limit, with infrastructure repairs of restoring electric power, water, and phone service and clearing the massive amounts of mud and debris blocking the roads.
WE NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE TO HELP THOSE WHO HAVE LOST EVERYTHING EXCEPT THEIR WILL TO LIVE AND BE HAPPY. PLEASE GIVE A HELPING HAND TO THE WONFDERFUL PEOPLE OF LOS CABOS AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS.
On behalf of all the people of Cabo San Lucas.
THANK YOU FOR DONATING NOW!
