I am from a small very rural area part of Honduras called Rio Frio, San Nicolas, Santa Barbara which is in the western part of the country. All of my mother's family (The Diaz, Mejia, Garcia, and Perdomo Families) all still live in this area. Recently two hurricanes went through affecting many families. But from my extended family, 8 families have been dispersed and separated due to the excessive damage. Due to the amount of rain the land is sinking causing mudslides and affecting the foundations and walls of all the houses. The damage is so great the homes are not repairable and the families will have to relocate and rebuild. All of these families are coffee farmers and their source of income has also been destroyed. The images attached are from my family members.
We know that many people have been affected by the hurricanes. We also know and have reached out to some organizations that have sent supplies and food to Honduras, but the aid has yet to arrive to the very rural areas where my family is.
All of them have to be relocated. They will all need to purchase land, build homes, and establish crops again.
For this purpose we are asking for your help. We would love to gather funds and send to my family so they can have the means to start over again. Their suffering is great right now, it doesn't matter if it is $1, $5 or whatever you are able to give, anything will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Hola, my nombre es Erix Lagos soy de Rio Frio, San Nicolas, Santa Barbara Honduras. Recientemente Etta y Iota, dos huracanes pasaron y afectaron a todo mi pais. Pero en este oportunidad estoy pidiendo ayuda para 8 familias que fueron afectadas. Sus tierras y casas estan destruidas y no pueden regresar y vivir. Por lo tanto, necesitan rehubicarse en otro lugar y construir casas. Estoy pidiendo la ayuda de todos los que quieren ayudar. No importa si es $1, $5 o lo que pueden ayudar generosamente. Sus ayuda se agradecera mucho! Gracias!
