We as community members must save our communities.

Nov 2020 to Feb 2021 the U.S. and other governments that serve our communities may be at a standstill during this transition, with the COVID -19 adding additional strains on our services and assistance needed.

TIme for us, the communities to come together and meet our needs in our immediate communities, and in other communities.

This is the opportunity for us to right the wrongs, and senseless inequities of the past. Overwhelmingly to decrease the gap between the have's and have nots for true equity.

We have family, brothers, and sisters severely impacted by the devastating destruction of Hurricane ETA, that it has forced us to go into “ALL HANDS-ON DECK”, EMERGENCY RESPONSE MODE.

“This Hurricane ETA has disseminated basic living conditions in Central America that are on the brink of despair.

It will be days before the true toll of Eta is known. Its torrential rains battered economies already strangled by the COVID-19 pandemic, took all from those who had little and laid bare the shortcomings of governments unable to aid their citizens and pleading for international assistance.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center forecast that parts of Nicaragua and Honduras could receive 15 to 25 inches (380 to 635 millimeters) of rain, with 40 inches (1,000 millimeters) possible in some isolated parts.

A week of rain spoiled crops, washed away bridges and flooded homes across Central America. Hurricane Eta’s arrival Tuesday afternoon in northeast Nicaragua followed days of drenching rain as it crawled toward shore. Its slow, meandering path north through Honduras pushed rivers over their banks and pouring into neighborhoods where families were forced onto rooftops to wait for rescue.

Honduras Foreign Affairs minister Lisandro Rosales said via Twitter that “the destruction that Eta leaves us is enormous and public finances are at a critical moment because of COVID-19, we make a call to the international community to accelerate the process of recovery and reconstruction.”
