Honduras Battered by Two
Hurricanes in Two Weeks
World Accord in Partnership with PRR Poised to Help
"So many people in Honduras are in REAL trouble with the back-to-back hurricanes of Eta and Lota", reports World Accord.
Al Wigood's heart is broken for the many people he has worked with and for over the last couple of decades and who have become his family. People are left stranded as roads are impassable. They are worried about how to feed their families and care for their needs.
Currently the airport at Tegucigalpa is closed due to extensive flooding. Many of the villages have been completely submerged and many mud slides have been triggered. The situation is horrendous on top of the pandemic.
"PRR is going to be helping those affected in their area. Not sure how yet", says World Accord. People are desperate for your help. Your donations will make a difference.
Community of Christ Oblation Aid for Honduras
Apostle Carlos Mejia in Honduras reports that Hurricane Eta damaged the northern part of the country 4 November, followed 17 November by Hurricane Iota that destroyed many roads and bridges throughout the country. Communication since has been unreliable, Mejia says.
The Presiding Bishopric indicates $40,000 in Community of Christ Oblation Aid has been sent to assist in response to the storm damage. Oblation aid is part of the Worldwide Mission budget.
"We had not yet woken up from Hurricane Eta when the other Hurricane Iota arrived. This was an experience never lived for some generations," Mejia said.
"Several of our members and many families in general lost everything. Reaching some neighborhood communities is like reaching a war zone, everything is [destroyed]. At this moment there are many places that the water is still flooding the houses and it is impossible to reach these people with help.
"Thank you to the entire church for your support in these difficult times," he concluded in a recent message to International Headquarters.
Supporting Worldwide Mission Tithes helps meet needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic, storms, and fires around the world.
May we remember and pray for all those affected by these tragedies.
