El Zonte is a beautiful beach town on the coast of El Salvador. It's lovely people have been highly challenged by the economic shutdown, the massive tropical storm in early June, and the looming threat of illness. We have had so many good times here, enjoying the surf and the beaches. The kindness of the locals has been heart-warming in an ongoing way, and we'd like to give back during this unique period of need.
During the quarantine, local organizations created food donation programs, which I had the fortune of being a part of. I was able to see, first hand, the direct benefit of even the smallest donations. We were able to purchase the basic necessities in bulk, stretching the dollars in a very efficient way.
Food donations were very effective at helping bridge the gap for families in need. Now that many people are back to work, we have transitioned our aid to provide building supplies. Many people still have roof damage from June's typhoon & cannot afford to do any repairs.
We have teamed up with Jorge Venezuela (Bitcoin Beach) who are sponsoring the labour portion of HOUSE #2. This is a huge success, as labour is much harder to budget with our fixed donations. Now our main focus is raising funds for MATERIALS. We visit each family on the list to determine what is needed for their repair. We do the purchasing ourselves and organize the deliveries through Pacifico Hardware. A small contribution goes a long way to restoring hope and keeping the community thriving!!!
