EMERGENCY APPEAL: Flooding in Honduras

Yes, I Will Help In A Time Of Need

Children and families have lost everything. The White Dove School is flooded, with Pastor Jose and 40 community members stuck on the second floor without electricity. You’re needed to help evacuate families and prevent a food shortage.

EMERGENCY FLOODING IN HONDURAS

Tropical storm Eta is causing deadly landslides and flooding in Honduras.

The White Dove School in Chamelecon you helped build is flooded on the main floor. Pastor Jose and his church members worked throughout the night and all day today to evacuate children and families.

Now Pastor Jose and 40 community members, including children, are stuck on the second floor of the school without electricity.

Once the water levels drop, Pastor Jose and his team of volunteers will evacuate women and children to higher grounds outside of Chamelecon.

Your prayers and donations are needed right now. Every bit helps — and the next 48 hours are crucial.

The families and children of Chamelecon need your help.

Knowing we can count on your support, we will do everything we can to help out in a time of need. Please give.

Our action plan

  • Assess the shortage of food, especially baby food
  • Assess the most urgent needs
  • Evacuate children and families to higher grounds
  • Take stock of the damage and material losses

Please pray for Honduras as yet another storm is heading toward the country.

Tropical storm Iota is set to make landfall in Honduras on Friday night into Saturday, posting another serious threat of flooding and rainfall.

The Honduran government has issued a Code Red Alert.

The White Dove School and the community of Chamelecon still have no power or electricity. Families who lost everything are getting ready to potentially have to evacuate again, just a week after one of the biggest floods of their lifetime.

 

Update: November 8 , 2020

Thank you so much for your prayers and your kind and caring generosity over the past 48 hours.

The water is now receding fast. In both of the GenRising partner schools that were affected, the families and children have been evacuated and are safe.

Children who've lost everything are sleeping in a temporary shelter you've helped to provide. Thanks to the generosity of GenRising supporters, they didn’t go to bed hungry.

The bad news is that the flood has destroyed everything. Families who already had so little, have even less now. Many will be starting from scratch.

The water is starting to slowly recede this morning. Pastor Jose and the families in Chamelecon have made it through the night.

Pastor Felix in the mountains of Las Colinas is starting to deliver emergency food supplies to families who fled their homes and have found temporary shelter.

The next steps are to asses the most urgent needs. A food shortage, especially baby food, is the main concern in the coming days.
