Costa Rica damaged by Nate Storm

The Association of Costa Ricans in Washington State is asking for donations to help thousands of people affected in Costa Rica by tropical storm Nate. The storm has caused several deaths and significant property damage. As a result of landslides and flooding, lives have been lost, families have been displaced from their homes, roads and bridges have been washed-away, animals have been killed and property has been damaged.  The funds collected will be transferred directly to the Costa Rican Red Cross account in Costa Rica (Cruz Roja Costarricense). Please consider donating any amount, as together we can make a difference for these people in need at this time. For additional information, feel free to contact Luis Navarro, President of the Costa Rican Association in Washington State at [email redacted], Patricia Phung at [email redacted] and Nadia Miranda at [email redacted]

La Asociación Costarricense en el Estado de Washington solicita su donación para ayudar a la Cruz Roja Costarricense y dar apoyo a los afectados por la tormenta tropical Nate.  Tristemente, han sucedido derrumbes, inundaciones, se han perdido varias vidas, y muchas familias han sido desplazadas de sus casas. Muchas carreteras y puentes se han dañado, y una de las carreteras más importantes que conecta al Sur ha sido destruida. Los fondos serán enviados directamente a la Cruz Roja Costarricense. Por favor considera una donación, no importa que tan pequeña sea, unidos en comunidad haremos la diferencia para nuestra gente en necesidad.
