HURRICANE “Iota”

“YOU TRULY CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY DONATING TODAY- PLEASE HELP US REBUILD OUR OFFICE, AND GET BACK TO WORK - DAMAGED BY HURRICANE IOTA”

We are happy to mention that despite the damages from the hurricane, no life was lost. Despite the hurricane's devastating effect that damaged nearly 98% of the Island, the fact that everyone is safe eases the hurt on wounds left.  The hurricane followed a previous strong hit by Hurricane Eta in less than two weeks, thus increased the amount of damage.

We are a small team of fifteen (15) who now have not only lost our working space but a contract with a mobile company that helped us earn a living. It is a sad coincidence that they had to cut us off when adversity knocked on our door.

The office building that served as a meeting place, workplace, and an essential aspect of our group, has suffered damages that limit its ability to continue serving. When a natural calamity strikes, the affected individuals not only risk suffering mentally and physically, their families are affected too. That is why we are calling for your help both in prayers and financially.

We would love to repair the damages and find new clients who appreciate our efforts. Despite the Spanish mobile company cutting us off, they merely paid enough to keep us afloat. We would have otherwise had the resources to repair our damaged office and resume work as normal.

ABOUT THE HURRICANE

Hurricane "Iota" made landfall ashore just 15 miles (25km) south of where Hurricane Eta made landfall on November 3, 2020, with winds of 155mph (250km/h), making it a Category 4  storm. This is the second hurricane to make landfall in Nicaragua during November since 2011 Eta. It made landfall about 30 miles (45km) south of the Nicaraguan city of Puerto Cabezas, also known as Bilwi.

Hurricanes are natural calamities that many can relate to, especially those of us living in Nicaragua and other regions in the world prone to hurricanes. What hurts most is the scars left by the hurricane.

THE DESTRUCTION

The hurricane did more harm than good, leaving many people without a workplace, heartbroken, and depressed.

 Our friends, families, and neighbors dependent on this office need our love, support, and more importantly financial help. With the pandemic, it is nearly impossible for them to get back on their feet on their own. It’s me and you who can help rebuild the office building with a little help.

Please share, donate, and spread the word to help our friends.

“We cannot wait to bring your donations into use and reconstruct this iconic structure that has been our source of revenue and hope.

Prayers are always appreciated, and we are grateful for every donation despite how small.

Join me, and let's make a difference!

 THE DONATION

The funding will help ease the burden by enabling the reconstruction of the office, the purchase of equipment destroyed by the storm, and keep us afloat as we find new clients.

WHY WE NEED YOU NOW

I believe that despite our community being small, we can make miracles happen.

WHY SHARE WITH FRIENDS

It might be in your best interest to donate, but maybe you cannot afford it. We all have a friend who cares about us and would do everything to help us fight through problems. By sharing this campaign, you give your friends a chance to save a life. You give them a reason to believe in your friendship. Let them look back on the impact they made and celebrate your friendship.

Be safe! And I wish to meet or hear from each one of you after this pandemic is over.
