Dear Friend ,

Once again, El Salvador has suffered a natural disaster, wreaking death and destruction. Over the weekend of Nov. 7 & 8, a massive rainstorm moving in after Hurricane Ida devastated the western part of the Central American country. Floods and mudslides killed 200 people, left 10,000 people homeless and destroyed more than 250 homes. President Maurico Funes declared a national emergency.

 

Comité En Unión para Salvadoreňos (CEUS), a Union City, NJ,-based non-profit organization formed by Salvadoran war refugees, is collecting money to help victims of the disaster rebuild their lives. Please consider making a donation to help victims desperately in need of food and shelter.

 

Send checks or money orders made out to CEUS, with the words “Hurricane Ida, ES” in the “For” line, to:
