The Help Los Ramos Rebuild donation website has been extremely successful. Thanks to YOUR support for this lovely indigenous community, you have given them hope and encouragement to rebuild their community of 125 families who were affected by the October 8th landslides on Ometepe Island.
We collected $ 2,188.
The first $800 purchased food and basic supplies for the community. Goodie Bags for Los Ramos.
The community purchased a second round of goodie bags for 125 families with $200.
The remaining $688 will be spent on rebuilding their cultural tourism programs. They are going to make brochures, order t-shirts for their community guides, so they all look professional, and buy needed items for the host families, such as several solar-powered lamps and water filters.
The mayor of Altagracia sent the big bulldozer to Los Ramos and their road is passable, now. Their water and electricity has been restored. I continue to marvel at the strength, faith, and fortitude of this amazing community. Poco a poco their lives will improve.
They wanted me to tell the world how grateful they are for your loving kindness and support.
