BENEFITING: Voices on the Border, Inc.
Few people residing in the United States are aware that there has recently been a devastating flood in El Salvador. In fact is is the worst flood in Central American history. The Funes Administration estimates that the flood damage totals over $840 million. The people in the flooded region have lost their homes, possessions, and crops. Many are still without access to food and clean water. This year, Castilleja School's El Salvador club has set out to establish a partnership with rural community in El Salvador's Lower Lempa region, but we have been sidetracked by the flooding, and are currently trying to raise funds to aid those in need. We support a small organization called Voices on the Border, which works hands-on with the people in El Salvador. In this time of need, any size donation makes a difference for someone who has lost everything.
