NICARAGUA EMERGENCY FLOOD RELIEF

$19,178 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 113 people in 4 months
Tropical Storm Nate hit Nicaragua on the evening on October 4th and by the early morning of October 5th, mass flooding and devastation had ensued. The rains kept up until Saturday afternoon, keeping the rivers high and access to many areas impossible. The area where we work and live, Tola, was impacted heavily by the rains and flash flooding. Hundreds of people lost homes and all of their belongings. Power has been out for over 72 hours now and the wells are contaminated, which means people have no drinking water or a way to bathe. Martita, the nurse who runs our ultrasound program, lost everything in her home when the river rose and swept through - she and her family barely made it out alive. My daughter, Sarah, and her family evacuated by walking in waist-deep rushing waters to high ground. People are sleeping in the streets, in the schools, in family members' homes, with no food, no water, no clothes.

This is Phase One of our efforts. Because shipping items takes so much time and money, at this point we are collecting funds in order to buy items in Nicaragua to distribute. Needed items are purified water, basic hygiene kits, buckets and barrels to hold clean water, food, sheets and clothing.

100% of your donations to Missions of Grace will go to your designated cause.

MOG had a small monetary part of the rebuilding of our first walls. So many times we are a part of a bigger whole. #iloveteamwork.The family already had a large part of the materials and the man of the house knows construction. When we supplied the rest of the materials and the labor of a trained local worker, they embraced the opportunity and dug in.
All our families being interviewed for new walls understand this is a joint effort - we will supply the materials and a lead construction worker and they supply the rest of the labor and lunch.
We so appreciate our donors-we cannot do this alone. Please stay with us and share also! New walls for Christmas!!

Hello! First a giant thank you is in order for all who donated thus far. We have helped so many and could not have done it without you. We have supplied stoves with propane tanks, mattresses, clothing, food, toys, school supplies, water filters with buckets, helped with getting wells cleaned and more.
Next Phase is to help rebuild. More on that next update. Again thank you. We are not done yet. Please share and continue to give if able. Rebuilding takes time.
